4 cups


  • 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


  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.


Use parsley or basil if marjoram is not available.
