Summer Cabbage Corn Slaw

Fresh local organic sweet corn is one of my favorite parts of summer.  So, when I get my hands on it, I am pretty happy.  I could eat it raw straight off the cob, but I find lots of creative uses for it.  Last week, it found its way into my coleslaw.  It had a creamy, tangy walnut butter dressing, sweet local cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil from my patio as well. Honestly, I ate the whole batch it was so good!  This is one of those recipes that seems like you would want a small portion but it ends up being your entire meal because you go back for seconds!
