Dinner Tonight: Amagansett Raw Corn, Tomato, and Snap Pea Salad

When looking for recipes to cook, I sometimes head to Food52 and look for the little widget on the side that tells you how many people are currently viewing their recipes. Big surprise that on a day in early August the most popular recipe was the Amagansett Corn Salad made of raw fresh corn, cherry tomatoes, snap peas, and not much else.

The idea of raw corn might seem odd but as long as the corn is super fresh, it's all sweetness; you can avoid that hint of chalkiness that sometimes happens. It also makes this one of the quickest dinners around.

There's also strangely no oil, which somehow works. Good quality balsamic adds all the richness necessary. Which also means you can gobble up as much as you'd like without guilt. I serve it with grilled bread.
