Grilled Corn Salsa

Good Morning!
I hope you had a great, sunny weekend! We spent it in Michigan enjoying the beach, good company and  camp fires. It was relaxing and the perfect retreat from the busy life!

Roasted Corn Salsa

Speaking of is that time of year! Sweet corn is at the farmers markets, grocery stores and those little farm stands you see on the side of the road.

Don’t get me wrong I love eating sweet corn right off the cob, especially after its been cooking on the grill, but I also really like making salsas and dips with it. Grilled Corn Salsa is addictive! Does anyone else have a slight obsession with Chipotle? The corn salsa they have is one of my favorite things to put on my burrito bowls when I go. This salsa reminds me of their corn salsa.

Grilled Corn

You start by preparing your sweet corn for the grill.  I followed these instructions and it worked great.

While your sweet corn cooks away on the grill you prepare the remaining ingredients.  Once the corn is done on the grill remove it from the cob and let it cool off.

Once it is cool mix it in with the other ingredients and enjoy with chips or on tacos or as a topping for dishes like Tilapia.

Chips and Salsa

Grilled Corn Salsa is versatile—can be eaten as a snack, garnish, topping for tacos and also makes a great dish to bring along with a bag of chips to a BBQ.

    • I love the flavor too! I didn’t actually start grilling corn until this year and now I am addicted. :)

  4. I am smitten with this beautiful recipe. Can’t wait to try!

  5. Beautifully captured salsa and you are making me wish even more that I had a grill! The fact that the salsa doesn’t have onion is a plus in my book :)
