I’ve received several comments and emails from folks who are less than thrilled with our August focus on Juicing. They’ve expressed dissatisfaction seeing only juice recipes appearing in their daily email.
When I decided to give juicing a try for 30 days it was for purely selfish reasons. I didn’t think about how it would effect those of you signed up for my daily emails who weren’t interested in juicing.
So, for the rest of the month I’m going to sift through the Archives to pull out and update some Weight Watchers friendly recipes perfect for right now.
Recipes like this simple summer corn tomato salad that I like even better than corn-on-the-cob. It’s the kind of recipe that’s only worth making when corn and tomatoes are fresh and in season.
Skinny on Summer Corn Tomato Salad
I love the combination of corn and tomatoes. And I love simple salads that can be tossed together in one bowl without a lick of cooking. The most challenging part of this summer corn tomato salad is cutting the corn from the cob. If you want some tips and hints for the best way to do it, I’ve included a video at the end of the post.

- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice or cider vinegar

- Cut the corn kernels from the cob into a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine. Cover and let sit for at least 15 minutes to give the flavors a chance to meld.
