Appetizer Recipe: Spicy Corn Salsa

Sometimes salsas are just too soupy and overpoweringówe like more of a fresh veggie element to our dips, so we decided to try this spicy corn salsa. If you like spice, you’ll love this recipe as is; if you don’t love it, leave the jalapeÒos out of the mix. You can’t go wrong either way.

This salsa is fresh and invigorating, and the perfect accompaniment to any main course. It’s as great on top of a southwestern-style salad, as it is eaten by itself. Pico de gallo, or your typical chunky tomato salsa is tasty, but this recipe is a really nice way to change things up a little. Share the love with corn and let it shine in this quick dip!
