  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 3 ears corn, husks removed

  • 8 ounces crusty sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch-thick slices

  • 8 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 pound tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 cup torn fresh basil leaves

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Preheat a gas grill to medium, build a fire in a charcoal grill or build a campfire and let it burn down to medium heat (about 400 degrees F).

  2. Combine onion, vinegar and lemon juice in a large bowl. Set aside, stirring occasionally.

  3. Meanwhile, grill corn, turning occasionally, until tender and slightly charred, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut the kernels from the cobs and add to the bowl with the onion.

  4. Brush or drizzle both sides of bread with 2 tablespoons oil. Grill the bread, turning once halfway, until both sides are well toasted, 1 to 3 minutes per side.

  5. Tear or cut the toasted bread into 1-inch cubes and add to the bowl. Add the remaining 6 tablespoons oil, tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt and pepper; stir to combine. Serve immediately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
