Corn Salad inside a Tomato

Root Source Challenge for this week is Sweet Corn. Ideally, sweet corn should not even be cooked. That's what inspired this Corn Salad inside a Tomato idea.


Ingredients
1 ear of corn, kernels removed
1/2 cup black beans
2 tablespoons of finely diced red onion
2 tablespoons dill, chopped
1 garlic clove, finely minced (or use a Microplane)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons red wine vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
a few tomatoes, top and insides carefully removed using a melon baller

Directions
1. Combine the first four ingredients
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together garlic, olive oil and vinegar, and season with salt & pepper
3. Add the dressing to corn/beans/onion/dill mixture
4. Spoon the salad into a tomato

That's a very beautiful salad. Do you scoop the insides out before eating the tomato, or just chomp the whole thing?
