Ingredients

  • 4 fresh ears of sweet corn

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, halved

  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 tablespoon cider vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh marjoram*

  • 4 slices crisp-cooked bacon, drained and crumbled

Directions

  1. Remove husks and silks from corn. Brush corn with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Grill corn, covered, over medium-high heat 10 to 15 minutes or until browned, turning frequently to prevent overbrowning. When cool enough to handle, cut kernels off the cobs.

  2. In a large bowl combine corn and the next six ingredients (through pepper). Add the marjoram and stir to combine. Top with crumbled bacon.

*Tip

Use parsley or basil if marjoram is not available.
