Easy spicy corn salsa

We are a family run on corn salsas, dips and salads. It is by far the thing I make most because not only am I guaranteed clean plates, corn salsa and salad easy, delicious and perfect for feeding a crowd. This easy, spicy corn salsa is no different.

How to make corn salsa

You can make this salsa with either fresh or frozen corn. If using fresh, grill the corn on the cob in a hot griddle pan or on an outdoor grill until charred and golden brown. Slice the kernels off the cob and continue with the rest of the recipe. If using frozen, thaw a bag of frozen corn then drain well. Add to a large, hot pan and allow to sear until the corn is golden brown and charred. Place in a bowl and allow to cool. Cube an avocado, finely chop a red onion and seed and finely chop tomatoes then combine with the charred corn, finely chopped coriander (cilantro) and finely chopped jalapeño. Season with salt and lime juice and mix well.

How long does corn salsa last?

Kept covered in the fridge, the salsa can be made a few hours ahead. If you want to make it a day ahead, leave out the avocado and don’t add the salt and lime. Only add the avocado, salt and lime right before serving.
