Summer is almost over you guys! What?!
I am always devastated to see short shorts and beach weather come to an end. Now, don't get me wrong. As sad as I am to see summer go, I alway look forward to the flannel wearing, the butternut squash everything that is fall (do not get me started on pumpkin). However, growing up in a beach town, summer always meant that our little town's population would swell to triple the size. Everything got more busy and more lively. And a lot more trashy. Not a whole lot of the "shoobies" knew how to drive and I MIGHT have almost gotten run over by a car/tripped trying to avoid cars and falling into the pavement. So yeah tourists and I do not have a good track record when it comes to "getting along."

Now one thing that always brings me to tears with the end of summer is the end of corn and tomato season. Growing up in the "Garden State," having a dad who turned a quarter of our backyard into a vegetable garden, and with an Instagram/blog named thecuttingveg, it is no surprise that the end of produce like this would bring me to tears. However, corn and tomatoes hold a special place in my heart. Sweet corn and tomatoes always bring me back to my childhood where dinners were long and lazy and filled with balsamic caprese and roasted corn on the cob. You know, before school had to ruin it and stuff.
This salad is one I make at least once a week. It's once of those things that "gets better as it sits" making it the ideal thing to make on a Sunday and let it sit in the fridge. Just make sure you DON'T add the tomatoes until right before serving. Cause cold, refrigerated tomatoes are no bueno.I have eaten it on top of greens, with tortilla chips, or used the yogurt as a spread and piled the corn/tomato mixture on top of flatbread. I have even eaten this with some sad romaine lettuce leaves straight out of the fridge. #noshame
