Tomato-Corn Salsa



Here's a super simple salsa that can liven up your party. This is what I had topped my ginger maple mahi mahi with. It brought a nice blend of flavors to the dish. Though, this isn't that spice mango-corn salsa I had on the set of Bones, this will do just fine for now. A blend of fresh tomato, corn, cilantro (or parsley for the non-cilantro loving crowd), shallots, lemon juice and an optional jalapeño or two.

Chop the whole thing together and you've got yourself a little crowd pleaser. Keep chilled in the fridge if you're not serving it right away.

Oh, don't forget the chips. Or do what I did and serve up as a crostini.

Makes roughly 2-3 cups.





Tomato-Corn Salsa: 

2 medium rip tomatoes - chopped
2 c corn kernals
3/4 c cilantro or parsley - chopped
1 large shallot - chopped
juice of one lemon
1-3 jalapeño (optional) - chopped
salt
pepper

Chop the tomatoes, cilantro or parsley, shallot, jalapeño, and place in a large bowl. Add in the corn kernals, then the lemon juice. Mix together thoroughly. Season with a little salt and pepper to taste. If not serving right away keep covered and cool.

Ooo, I bet that would be great in an omelet. Or straight. Heh.

I like any salsa with corn in it. I liked that you used maple syrup and ginger for the mahi mahi. I've used specially made maple syrup infused with ginger on trout. Now I'm thinking that combo can be used on any fish.

Jenn said...

Tasty Eats: Hehe...

Parita, Mary, Pam: Thanks.

Andrea: ;-D

Jen: Me, too.

CC: I wish I made a bigger batch.

Bob: Omelete yes!!

Hummingbird: I've got to try the maple on trout.
