Everyone knows there is no shortage of summer produce during the summer months. Some, like blueberries and strawberries, are only in season for a short period of time, while others are ripe for the picking all summer long! As summer draws to a close, two of our favorites that are still going strong are tomatoes and corn. As it turns out, they also make quite the pair flavor-wise! There are lots of way to use these two summer staples together over the next few months.When summer starts to creep away, the sweet corn and ripe tomatoes are in abundance.

Here are some ideas:
Salad Toppers. Throw the corn in some boiling water or toss it on the grill before slicing it off the cob and grab some ripe, juicy cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. Pair them with some high protein salad toppers like grilled steak or chicken, black beans or chickpeas. This Southwest Chopped Salad and Grilled Corn Salad with Spicy Cheddar Dressing are so easy to throw together and bursting with summer flavor!
Go Mexican! Few other cuisines pair tomatoes and corn together more frequently than Mexican. Whether it’s in tacos, enchiladas, casseroles or soup, you’ll find no shortage of ways to combine the two. Start with recipes like these Chicken Enchiladas or this Chicken Tortilla Soup!
Make a Relish! One easy way to take your grilled meat and fish to the next level is to top it with a fresh salsa or relish! Combine tomatoes, corn and a few other summery ingredients to top this recipe for Grilled Tilapia Fillets.
Let your creative juices flow in the kitchen when you find yourself with a surplus of these two flavorful ingredients! The possible combinations are endless! They’d be great mixed into a savory muffin or omelet as well!
