The Best Summer Tomato Salad (Southwestern Tomato and Corn Salad)

From America’s Test Kitchen.

The key to this salad is choosing the best tomatoes and corn you can find; it’s hard to beat ripe, sweet, in-season produce. We tried adding the corn to the salad three ways: blanched, sautéed, and raw.
