Corn Salsa

This is a fresh spring/summer salsa or salad that is very tasty. It's not your typical salsa, but I find the flavors delicious. Husband also commented on the freshness. It's a nice change from traditional salsa and if you have fresh sweet corn it is amazing.

Corn Salsa

3 ears of fresh corn
1/3 small red onion, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 of one poblano pepper, seeded and diced
2 tsps. olive oil
juice of 1 lime
dash of salt
dash of sugar
cilantro, chopped

Prepare the corn. I shucked and then boiled the ears for about 12 minutes in salted water. Cool. Cut the corn off the cob and place in a medium sized bowl.


Add all the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. It's that easy!!!


And don't forget the cilantro like I did...


Notes: It wasn't spicy enough for husband, although he did like it. He splashed some Tabasco on top. I really liked it. The sweetness of the corn and the spiciness of the peppers just give it a great all around flavor. I think fresh corn really makes it happen for this salsa! It would also be great as a side to chicken for a meal. We just ate it with tortilla chips. Also, be extra careful dicing the jalapeno.
