Indian-Style Tomato and Corn Salad

I was originally going to make a tomato soup, but eager for spring, I decided to make this fresh and spicy Indian-style tomato and corn salad instead. With a zesty homemade lime and chat masala dressing, this simple salad is as vibrant as a warm summer day. If only eating salads could bring about a quick change in the weather!

Beautiful salad. You do do MANY great tomato dishes. I was hoping you might enter one in my TomatoMania contest. 6 winners will have thousands of recipe cards printed up as handouts at the LA Garden Show in May. I particularly love your tomato soup with polenta croutons! GREG

Yum what a fresh looking salad! The big (big to me!) slices of pepper kind of scare me though haha. And can I come to that dinner?? Sounds so good.
