Tomato & Corn Salad

It’s hot. Ice cream trucks are everywhere. Fire hydrants are being opened.

It’s summer.

The last thing I’m sure anyone wants to do during the heat is cook. Just the idea of being near an oven makes me sweat! On those days that you really can’t stand the heat of the kitchen, think about preparing a salad that is easy and quick. This tomato & corn salad is filling and refreshing and goes great with barbeque.


  • 6 cups fresh corn kernels (about 6 ears)
  • 2 lbs grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 4 jalapeños, seeded & thinly sliced
  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 1/4 lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine the corn, tomatoes, scallions, jalapeños, oil, and lime. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 12.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
