The recipe for corn salsa is very basic and need only few ingredients.It is usually made with poblano or jalapeno pepper.I had the later one so I used the same.
Normally I prefer to use the fresh sweetcorn or yellow corns but this time I couldn’t find them in the local grocery.The only difference is a little bit in the texture of corn ,the fresh one tastes better.So if you are planning to make corn salsa I would say use fresh corn and enjoy the refreshing goodness.
1 can yellow corn or 1 cup fresh or frozen corn
1 medium red onion,finely chopped
1 medium tomato,finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper,desedded and finely chopped
1/4 cup cilantro leaves,finely chopped
juice of 1 lime
salt to taste
peppercorn,freshly crushed,to taste
wash and drain the corn and set aside.If using fresh corn boil them in salted water for 3-4 minutes or until soft.Drain and cool.
In a mixing bowl add all ingredients except salt pepper and lemon juice.
Add in the drained corns.Mix well.
Season with salt and pepper.Squeeze in fresh lime juice.
Serve immediately with chips.
