Corn Salsa

Corn Salsa is a perfect summer dish. The grocery stores are loaded with fresh sweet corn and I was tempted to buy them. I love grilled corn and also like to add it in my Mexican dishes. But unfortunately my husband doesn't like it. So I buy once in a while and enjoy by myself. This recipe is adapted from here.

Making corn salsa is pretty easy. This is served in my favorite fast food chain - Chipotle. I make sure to include it in my burrito bowl every time :-) Do try making this simple salsa and enjoy it with chips on a lazy weekend!

  • Sweet Corn - 1 ear
  • Onion, finely chopped- 2 Tbsp
  • Jalapeño - To taste
  • Cilantro (coriander leaves) - 2-3 sprigs
  • Lime juice- To taste
  • Salt- To taste
Note: For variation - You can also include bell pepper, roasted poblano pepper, cooked black beans, tomato.
For mild onion flavor, use scallion (green onion) instead of red onion.


Clean the corn and start roasting it.

Until it is charred evenly throughout (or you can even cook the corn in a pot of boiling water).

Shave off all the corn kernels using a knife. Then chop jalapeño, cilantro and onion.

Put them in a bowl. Then squeeze in lime juice and salt. Mix well. 

Corn Salsa is ready!!

Serve it with corn chips or you can include them in fajita, burrito or quesadilla. Above measurement serves one.
