Crispy Corn Salsa
Since Chef Donavan's introduction was the most visited post on our blog yesterday he decided you deserved a treat!
Here's a very simple recipe (he's easing you in) to put together this weekend. It's a very fresh, light dish that will take you just 10 minutes to complete. If you can resist eating all of it, it will be the perfect topping for your very Tasty Tuesday recipe set to come--- well, on TUESDAY! LOL
*4 ears Fresh Corn on the cob (corn cut off cob)
*3 Large Tomatoes (small dice)
*1 large onion (small dice)
*1 bunch fresh cilantro (rough chopped)
*Salt and pepper to taste
*2 tsp ground cumin
*1 large bell pepper (small dice)
*1/4 cup olive oil
*1/8 cup vinegar (red or white)
-Cut corn off cob and boil for 10 minutes or until Al dente (a little crunch still in the kernel)
-mix all the other ingredients together and set at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Serve with all kinds of foods or use as a salad on a cool day.
Tip: make sure when you are dicing your onions, peppers, and tomatoes that they are about the same size as the corn or just a bit larger. You do not want the corn to get "lost" with the other ingredients. Remember the corn is the main ingredient so highlight the corn.
