Friday Food Fight: Corn-Tomato Salad

Mark Bittman and Kelsey Nixon

Who makes a better summer corn-and-tomato salad — Mark or Kelsey?

Welcome to Friday Food Fight, where we pit two similar recipes against each other and leave it to you, Cooking Channel fans, to tell us which you like better — or why your own take on the dish beats them both!

This week, we’ve got two takes on an August favorite: the corn-and-tomato salad. Both are at their peak right now, so we turned to foolproof recipes from Mark Bittman and Kelsey Nixon to take full advantage of the summer produce bounty before it’s too late.

Mark Bittman's corn-and-tomato salad

Mark's Pan-Roasted Corn and Tomato Salad

Mark Bittman, after all, is The Minimalist, so his recipe is simple — but he makes this classic combo a little more decadent by adding creamy avocado and crisp bits of bacon.

Kelsey Nixon's Charred Corn Salad

Kelsey's Charred Corn Salad with Basil Vinaigrette

Kelsey hits the grill first to get a nice char on her corn before tossing it and the rest of her salad essentials — tomatoes and red onion — with homemade basil vinaigrette.

Which recipe inspires you to shuck some corn?
