Sweet Corn and Peach Salad

Sweet Corn and Peach Salad
So, I noticed a theme to all my food concoctions thus far. They're all pretty easy and require really, not even much of a strict recipe. Take this one. It's basically just combining really great fresh produce together. Summer's harvest is a beautiful thing. Fresh sweet corn off the cob. This corn is insanely sweet, no need to even really heat it up, you can eat it raw. I only sauteed it with a bit of green pepper and garlic to just accentuate the great flavor. Added fresh local peaches and baby tomatoes. These tomatoes also were some of the sweetest produce I've tasted in a while. Mother nature, you're one fine lady. This years' crop is blowing my mind. (Blueberries this year, also, sooo unbelievably sweet!)
In conclusion, this salad is really just slicin and dicin some fruit and veg and adding about a 1/4 cup of good quality olive oil and juice of half a lemon and some salt and pepper. That's it. It's always good to balance out sweet and salt. Like, say you add olive oil, it's beneficial to add an acid such as lemon, lime or any kind of vinegar (balsamic, red wine, rice, etc). Easy. And so tasty.
