Corn Tomato Salad with Vidalia Onions

Corn Tomato Vidalia Oinion Salad Salsa madeinaday.com

Yay! It’s Vidalia Onion season and you must try this Corn Tomato Salad with Vidalia Onions! Some of you are probably asking what is a Vidalia Onion? Well it’s the tastiest onion in the south, ya’ll. When these beauties come into season each year, I stock up on them like a super hoarder.

These onions have been grown in Vidalia, Georgia since the early 1930’s. The reason behind that is the low sulfur content in the soil where the onions are grown make them super sweet. They are hands down my favorite onion.  

This recipe is great for any BBQ or get together. But don’t fret if you are not able to get your hands on some Vidalia onions, you can use any sweet onion for this recipe and it will turn out just as great.

Recipe Notes

I make this salad hours before serving. I put this salad in a sealed plastic container and turn it to blend ingredients every 15-20 minutes. For a different twist on flavor switch out the basil for cilantro. Both ways taste just as great!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, it’s one of my family new summer fav’s!
