Here’s a quick and easy salad recipe that makes use of a bounty of late-summer produce.

I threw this salad together the other day in an effort to use up odds and ends in my refrigerator: sweet corn cut off the cob, mini heirloom tomatoes, and goat cheese. 

This last-minute, throw-together dish ended up tasting really good, and I’m quite certain I’ll be making it again.
