Tomato Basil Corn Salad with Shallot Miso Dressing

Yum

A very easy-to-make dish containing a white miso dressing that adds an earthy flavor to enhance the meaty flavor of the tomatoes. By salting the tomatoes and letting them set for 20 to 30 minutes, draws out their juices so they'll meld with the dressing when you combine all the components. Definitely a favorite! 

Ingredients:

- 3 large ripe heirloom tomatoes, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces, or 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 Tbs parsley, minced
- 3 Tbs red wine vinegar
- 1/2 Tbs Dijon mustard
- 1 Tbs reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tbs white miso
- 1/4 cup diced shallots
- 3 cups fresh corn kernels
- 1/4 cup shaved parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh basil, torn into small pieces

Place tomatoes in a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let set 20 to 30 minutes. Combine oil, parsley, vinegar, mustard, soy sauce, miso, and shallots in a pint jar. Seal and shake until blended. You can also add these ingredients to a blender to combine. Add the vinaigrette dressing, corn, cheese and basil to tomatoes. Toss gently to combine, serve immediately, and most importantly, ENJOY! :) If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
