This peach corn tomato salad with basil, parmesan and a flavorful miso vinaigrette is the ultimate fresh and healthy summer side dish! (gluten-free, vegetarian)



For the Miso Vinaigrette:

  • 1 tbsp white miso
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1.5 tsp tbsp low sodium soy sauce (use tamari for gluten-free)
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium shallot, minced (about 3 tbsp)
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

For the Salad:

  • 2 large ripe tomatoes (or 1 large tomato and 1 cup cherry tomatoes)
  • 1 large peach
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 ears corn
  • 10-15 basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup good quality parmesan, freshly shaved


  1. To make the dressing, place all dressing ingredients in a jar. Whisk or shake to combine. Set aside.
  2. Cut tomato into wedges. If using cherry tomatoes, cut them in half. Cut peach in half and remove the pit. Cut each half into slices. You can leave them in slices, or cut the slices into smaller bites.
  3. Place tomatoes and peaches in a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. (You can make the dressing while they sit if you'd like.)
  4. Shuck corn and slice kernels off of the cob. Add to the bowl with tomatoes and peaches.
  5. Tear basil leaves into large pieces. Add basil and shaved parmesan to the bowl with corn.
  6. Pour in dressing, starting with about half, and gently stir to combine. Add more dressing to taste.
  7. Serve immediately.


  • Salting the tomatoes and peaches helps to draw some of the water out, making them extra juicy, so don't skip it!
  • Use good quality parmesan and shave it yourself for the best flavor. I like to use a cheese plane like this one.
  • The dressing can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
