Sharing is caring!

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

Grilled Corn Salsa

Speaking of summer..it 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 for Grilled Corn Salsa

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

Grilled Corn - Grilled Corn Salsa recipe

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 as with chips as an appetizer or on tacos or as a topping for dishes like Tilapia.

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 :)

No, grill?! You can still make it and I am sure it would taste just as good! :)
