Summer Corn Salad

Jordan found this great corn salad in a Taste of Home Grilling edition magazine. He pointed to it and asked if I could make it. Why yes, I can and I was so glad he found it because it was delicious! Very refreshing and a great side to something grilled.

1 Tablespoon lime juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
5 tsp olive oil, divided
1 1/2 tsp cups fresh corn (or frozen)
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 Tablespoons minced fresh basil
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

In a small bowl, whisk the lime juice, salt, pepper sauce, and 4 tsp olive oil; set aside.

In a large skillet, saute corn in remaining oil until tender. Transfer to a salad bowl; add the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, & basil. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat.

Let salad stand for 10 minutes before serving or refrigerate until chilled. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.
