Ingredients for Salmon Salad With Grilled Corn And Heirloom Tomatoes

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 large heirloom tomato cut into wedges or rough chopped into large chunks, about 10 pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 3 large ears fresh corn
  • 4 cups baby spinach or other favorite salad green
  • 2 1/2 cups smoked salmon pieces
  • 1/4 cup red onion thinly sliced and then the slices cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves and flowers fresh, torn
  • 1/4 cup chives fresh, snipped

optional * see recipe card notes below for a basic oil and vinegar dressing, or

  • 2 cups salad dressing or vinaigrette of choice divided


The Method

  • Whisk together oil, vinegar, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl. Add heirloom and cherry tomatoes, and toss to coat. Let stand 10 minutes.
  • Coat corn with cooking spray. Add to grill pan, and cook over medium-high, using tongs to turn occasionally, until charred on several sides, about 15 minutes. Remove corn from pan. Cut kernels off cobs, and discard cobs.
  • Add spinach and torn basil in bowl and toss. Dress with 1/4 cup of your favorite dressing or vinaigrette. * see notes below if using the tomato marinade as your dressing
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the tomatoes from their marinade. Add the tomatoes to the salad. Add the corn and the sliced red onions and the freshly snipped chives. Break the smoked salmon into large pieces and arrange atop salad.
  • Serve with remaining cups of dressing or vinaigrette tableside.


If you'd like to keep things simple and deliciously fresh, you may opt to use the oil and vinegar marinade that is used for the tomatoes. If using, the recipe must be doubled as follows:
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
