try this. Summer Sweet Corn Salsa


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. 


The mix.

  • 3 tomatoes, diced 
  • 4-5 ears of sweet corn (We used our local friends, Hole's sweet corn we picked up at the farmers market.  Take the corn kernels off the cob with a knife. 
  • 1 15 oz. can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped 
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • jalapeno, dice fresh is always best
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1-2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Mix it up!

Chop and dice all your ingredients. Once they are prepped, add them to a large bowl, toss gently.

Chill in the fridge for an hour.

Serve with chips for a simple summertime treat!
