Corn Salsa

It is the middle of February and I am desperately missing fresh, homegrown produce after this long winter.  During the summer months I love making salsa with things that I grow in my garden and this week I got a craving for some fresh, homemade salsa.  However the fact that my garden is currently under 10 inches of snow means that I need to look elsewhere.


This corn salsa strays from a typical tomato based salsa, but it is full of flavors and tastes fresh from the garden.  Just what I needed!

Corn Salsa

4 cups frozen corn, cooked and cooled
1 green pepper, diced
2-3 jalapeno peppers, diced
1 small red onion, diced
juice of one lemon
juice of one lime
3-4 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste.

Toss all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Eat with chips or use to top tacos,  quesadillas or even a crunchy salad with chipotle ranch dressing.

Think Spring!

  1. This looks and sounds SO delicious. I’m one of those weirdos who prefers corn salsa to tomato-based salsa. And I love that this contains cilantro – I put it on everything. Literally, everything.

  3. I do this year round too. It gets better in the summer, but I love it even without fresh tomatoes.
