Tomato Corn Salad

It’s been years since I first had this Tomato Corn Salad. A friend of mine brought it over to a going away party they were throwing for us when we moved away from Portland in 2008. I was so sad to leave Portland and for whatever reason, this dish is the thing that sticks in my memory from that time. Isn’t it odd how people create memories around food? I’ve made this side dish many times since then and always get tons of compliments on it. Hope you like it!
