Soon I will be off again to visit friends and family and for me that means not just loving every minute of it but also indulging in some of the not-so-healthy choices you can find in North America, and believe me I find them all.

 In Italy a lot of  the food products I grew up eating here aren’t available,  so I decided to give my diet a break before I leave and eat a little healthier.

Before I start with the an ice cream here, some chips there oh and let’s not forget about the two slices of toast with peanut butter or better yet the toasted Bagel I usually have for breakfast!

So one of the the dishes that I love to make and I must say I make it at least once a week in the summer is this delicious Easy Italian Tuna Corn Salad. This is one of the dishes my kids ask for continuously.

How to make a Summer Corn Salad

  • In a large bowl mix together tuna, chopped fresh mozzarella, sweet corn, cherry or grape tomatoes, celery and green onion
  • In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, basil and oregano.
  • Pour over the tuna, corn mixture and gently combine.
  • Refrigerate for about one hour.

It’s a perfect dish for a hot, summer day. Great as a side dish or even main dish if you wish. It’s healthy and filling and very colourful.

I find that we are attracted to foods and dishes that are the most colourful when we are looking for something to eat and this is the reason why I think you will love this corn salad just as much as I do.

Enjoy the salad and let me know what you think of it! Buon Appetito!

      1. Hi Vanessa, so glad you enjoyed it. I guess it is about 4 1/2 cup servings more or less. I usually serve it as a side dish. Rosemary

    2. This was an absolutely amazing dish. We thoroughly enjoyed the combination of flavors and plan on making it all summer with our fresh tomatoes.
