I wanted to make a salsa with some of the things I had hanging out in the fridge to go with tonight’s dinner. I love how sweet fresh corn is this time of year – so good that you can eat it raw. So I combined it with some tomatoes and a few other things for a nice, refreshing salsa. I added hot sauce, but you could use some minced jalapeño or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper or chili powder to keep it totally raw, if you like. This was nice, crisp and cool, and went perfectly with the Quinoa Black Bean Burrito Bowls that I made. Yum!
Raw Sweet Corn and Tomato Salsa
4 plum tomatoes, chopped
2 ears corn, kernels cut off
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 lime, zested and juiced (about 2 tablespoons of juice)
a few dashes of hot sauce (or minced jalapeño, a sprinkle of cayenne pepper or chili powder)
pinch of kosher salt
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate, covered, for at least an hour, so the flavors can mingle.
