Corn Salsa

During the summer when corn is in season, I look for any excuse to buy it, it’s so wonderfully sweet! We’ll have it in chowder, salad, grilled, and of course, simply on the cob.

Corn also makes a fabulous salsa.

The sweetness of the corn balances the acidity from the lime juice. Along with some jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, and oregano, it’s a fiesta of flavor.

Corn Salsa

Although not the kind of salsa that one can easily balance on a chip (though that doesn’t stop us from trying), it’s terrific as a side to any southwestern dishes like tacos and enchiladas, or a straight up side with chicken or steak. It would be great to serve for a game-day party or summer potluck. 

A friend told me that corn salsa is one of the most popular menu items at Chipotle. I’m not surprised! (This one is better.)
