Southwestern Tomato And Corn Salad. New Music From Levy & The Oaks.

Looking for that perfect side to show off those cool colored tomatoes that are showing up at all the supermarkets? Try this Southwestern Tomato And Corn Salad. It gets a little heat from the jalapeño and a little cool from the mild cheese.
