At the end of summer when the garden is full of tomatoes and corn this is a lovely way to use them up. It's very easy and also makes a good picnic salad.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 75g sweet corn kernels

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • handful chopped fresh basil

Used different ingredients. This was great! Used cherry tomatoes cut in half. Did not have red wine vinegar, used Balsamic. You could use any small pasta...yum. Great with all the fresh summer produce. - 21 Jul 2008


This was nice for a very hot day, very refreshing. The spring onions added a nice crunch, and the corn and tomatoes made it colorful and appealing. However i felt it needed just a little more zing, so i added afew splashes of balsamic vinegar. overall a nice basic summer salad. - 17 Dec 2012


Altered ingredient amounts. A tasty summer dish - hot or cold. I modified the dish slightly, but it turned out well. I used more sweetcorn. Instead of parmesan, I used feta with pleasing results. I also used way less oil (only 1 tbsp). Otherwise pretty tasty.. I'd wait for the summer tomatoes for this dish. - 21 Jul 2008
