I used frozen corn instead of canned corn for a more fresh taste. If I were to make this again I would use white balsamic vinegar for a crisper look. I would also serve this with toasted french bread instead of the buttered English muffin. The flavors are good and just a bit different than the standard Caprese Salad.

Using fresh basil for this dish is a must. It really makes the salad taste summery and crisp. I didn't make any changes other than used black truffle oil instead of white (since that was all I had). I liked the hint of earthy taste that the truffle oil provided but be careful not to use to much as it can be overpowering. I served this with thinly cut French Bread.
