Corn Salad

This is a salad that I came up with to use left over corn at one point in time. It has evolved to what it is today by little tweaks here and there. The latest one make it over the top.

4 cans of corn drained and rinsed
1 pint of cherry tomatoes - cut in halves or 1/4ths
one medium onion- diced
Sartori Bella Vitano Balsamic Cheese- From Publix-- see note below
4 or 5 tablespoons Dukes Mayo
salt and pepper to taste
apple cider vinegar- to taste

Mix all the ingredients together. Let sit over night in the fridge before serving.

The cheese is one I got for my Birthday from my mother. It made this salad perfect. Any kind of crumbly cheese would work. This one has a sweet kind of flavor. It taste like Parmesan with balsamic added to it.

I also got a Members Mark Dutch Oven. The enamel cast iron type for my Birthday. I decided last night to cook a roasted chicken in it. I put carrots, cherry tomatoes, and onions in the bottom of the dutch oven with about a cup of water. I put the chicken on top and baked it at 400 until done. After we removed the chicken and vegetables I thickened the juices up to make a pan gravy.
