Some of my favorite flavors of summer are at their peak right now, so I make a point to overindulge in them as much as possible. Ripe tomatoes, corn and basil are key ingredients in most everything I make these days, but I think my favorite summer indulgence is to combine them all together for a fresh and easy summer salad.
This salad is extremely versatile and goes well with most any summer meal, here it serves as a side dish with lobster, steamed asparagus and rose, simply elegant, colorful and delicious.
For a luncheon, I tossed in chunks of tuna for a marvelous version on one of my favorites, a Tuna Nicoise salad. I should have dotted it with a few Nicoise olives, but… oh well, it was delicious anyway!
