try this. Summer Sweet Corn Salsa

image.jpg

This mix up is a perfect dish to share at any gathering. It adds a twist to traditional salsa and can also be used as a salad topper. Grilled shrimp and chicken are also a sweet add!  

Try roasting the sweet kernels in a cast iron skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil and a dash of salt before adding to the mix!  This adds a smokey flavor to the salsa. Fresh and simple! The way we like it. 

Enjoy!
