Spicy Tomato and Corn Salad

This Spicy Tomato and Corn Salad, with a lime, jalapeno, and shallot dressing, is a wonderful side dish for summer outdoor grilling.

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.

Spicy Tomato and Corn Salad

This spicy tomato and corn salad is simple to make, and delivers such refreshing flavors.

Ripe tomatoes are a wonderful summertime vegetable. Definitely use the ripest tomatoes you can find. I found these small red tomatoes that were vine ripened, and they really made this salad.

You could use heirloom tomatoes of various colors to make this salad even prettier. I'm also thinking of using cherry tomatoes of various colors. Doesn't that sound beautiful?

For the dressing, I added one of our sponsor's products, Adams Burgers, Fries, & More Multi-Seasoning. It added extra zip to the flavor of the salad.
