Corn Salsa

May 18, 2011


Memorial Day, swimming and summertime barbecues are right around the corner, so I thought I would get your tummies rumbling with a salsa that’s full of vibrant colors, fresh flavors and lots of nutrition.

Ever since corn reappeared at our local Farmers’ Market a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been serving the kids this Corn Salsa as a side dish, but then I realized it’s also the perfect accompaniment to a bag of tortilla chips as a dipping salsa. No matter how you decide to serve it, it’s super simple to make and perfect to double or even triple if you have a bunch of people coming over.

This recipe is part of Food Network’s Summer Fest. Check out all the other corn recipes below!
