Easy Corn Salsa Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

Today we are making summer sweet corn salsa. its the perfect blend of sweet and spicy; using a mix of fresh and canned ingredients, this corn salsa is ready in just minutes.

This sweet corn season will probably be short due to all the flooding in Ohio’s farm lands. If you’re going to buy sweet corn, I recommend getting it from your local farmers market or fruit stand. Nothing beats locally sourced sweet corn! We ate our salsa the first night with tortilla chips and then a few days later to use the rest up, I used the salsa as a bed for some chipotle cheddar stuffed chicken breasts!

NOTE: If you hate cilantro as much as I do (i.e. it tastes like soap to you) feel free to sub out the cilantro for parsley. You're welcome!
