Design Fixation: Knock 'Em Dead Corn Salsa


Knock 'Em Dead Corn Salsa

It's not often that I post a recipe, but now that summer has arrived with a vengeance, I thought this would be a great one to share with you. I make variations of this corn salsa throughout the warm months of the year (and sometimes in the winter also... who am I kidding?). I used a number of ingredients from my Farmer Dave's CSA share to make this salsa, including the garlic scapes which I had never heard of until joining. A garlic scape is the stalk of a garlic plant, and they lend a bit of crunchy texture to this salsa. 

So without further adieu, here are the ingredients you'll need for this refreshing corn salsa:

- 3 ears of fresh corn, cut from the cob 
   [or substitute 2 cups of frozen sweet corn, thawed]
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- 1 garlic scape, chopped [or 1 clove of regular garlic]
- 1/4 cup of red onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup of cilantro, chopped
- 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
- cayenne pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, and stir gently to combine. One note: if you have chosen to use frozen corn, you may want to add a tablespoon of agave nectar (usually found with the honey at the grocery store) or a tablespoon of simple syrup to sweeten the salsa. Now grab some corn chips and a margarita... and enjoy!

Stay tuned for this weekend's post on interesting ceilings... yup, a reminder to look up because sometimes the most beautiful part of a room is hiding above you.
