RECIPE: Summer Corn Salsa

Simply Recipes

Summer Corn Salsa

Recipe Happy Canada Day weekend! I hope my friends here in Canada are having a glorious time with friends and family, or peacing out solo style for this fine first day of July.

It's the easy things that make me happy when the going gets hot, hot, hot! The clean and simple recipes that show off the absolute greatness that is eating food that has been harvested at its most ripe and often sold to me on the very same day it was plucked.

The ingredients that comprise this super simple salsa/salad will soon be up for grabs at a market near you, or maybe even already if you are chilling in the warmer States down below.

What I love about this Summer Corn Salad recipe is that with the very same ingredients, you can enjoy this cooked or raw and can be used in so many ways.

This salse will be better if allowed to sit for 1-2 hours before serving. But good luck with waiting!
