Super Simple Corn and Tomato Salsa
I always seem to end up with an extra corn on the cob when we grill with them, and I'm never quite sure what to do with it. They're never quite the same as leftovers, and there's not quite enough to make cornbread or a full meal. So since I'm still trying to finish off some of the tomatoes from my garden (so many tomatoes!), I figured a nice little corn and tomato salsa would be a good farewell for the lonely cob.I used what I had in the kitchen, which included red onion, tomatoes, corn, and cilantro. The good thing about this type of salsa is that you can always throw in whatever you have. Bell pepper? Jalapeños? Perfect! Just chop everything into small bite-sized pieces and throw it in. You can even throw some black beans if you want to bulk it up a bit.
- The corn from one or two cooked corn cobs - grilled is best, but any cooking method will work.
- 1/4 red onion, diced finely
- 2 ripe tomatoes, diced (cherry tomatoes will work too)
- The juice of one lime
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste
- This one is pretty easy. Once you've removed the corn from the cob, mix all the ingredients together.
- Taste and adjust seasoning. Don't be shy on the salt - it really brings out the flavors!
