Corn Salad with Tomatoes and Basil

Fresh corn cut right off the cob makes one of my absolute favorite salad additions.  But sometimes I like it to be the star of the dish, which brings me to this summer salad.

Some of the best summer vegetables all in one spot, each one amplifying the flavors of the other.  And to keep it all simple and focus on the flavors of the ingredients, it all gets tied together with a 2 ingredient dressing.
