There was a time in my life when I could not be persuaded to try corn salsa. Which, as I write this, makes me laugh because I really consider myself to have quite an adventurous palate. On the cob, off the cob, it's great! In a salad or a soup, meh. There is something about corn, probably only on a visual level, that makes me pause when it is used as an ingredient. So I'm sure you can imagine I was not interested in trying anything with corn as its main ingredient. Luckily, however, one fateful afternoon at work, I found myself hungry enough to give corn salsa a try. Amazing! I would've loved to have seen the look of shock on my face as I realized how much I liked it. I immediately realized how severely I had been missing out each time I disdainfully passed it by. Now I look back on those days as a dark chapter in my culinary history.
After looking around for a good recipe, I found myself underwhelmed. None of them seemed to give me enough flavor, so I went ahead and figured out my own recipe. It's a favorite of mine when I need something to take to a warm weather get together.
This is one of my favorite treats to have in the fridge. It's great with some chips for a quick snack and perfect as a taco topping. I've also found it tastes incredible atop a bratwurst.
Oh, and yes. This does mean I no longer pass things up when corn is involved, well, not every time at least.
Will you try it? Let me know what you think!
