Sharpen up your knives -- that's all you'll need to prepare this hearty summer dinner. Start with fresh ears of your favorite sweet corn, Roma tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese. To prepare the dish:

  • Cut the corn kernels off the ears into a large bowl. This is your major ingredient. Your proportions will be two parts corn, one part chopped tomatoes and one part mozzarella.
  • Chop the tomatoes into bite-sized pieces.
  • Cut the mozzarella into bite-sized chunks.
  • Add the tomato and mozzarella to the corn.
  • Drizzle the mixture with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and toss to coat.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with your favorite fresh herb -- parsley sprigs or basil leaves.

That's it. Serve this dish up in big bowlfuls and offer chilled watermelon wedges for dessert.
