Fresh Corn Salsa – made with fresh ears of crisp corn, sweet bell pepper, vibrant red onion, herby cilantro, and a zesty spiced lime dressing. It’s makes a perfect chip dip or a topping to pair with a main protein.
Fresh corn and bell pepper are fire roasted over a hot grill or gas stove flame for a beautiful smokey char, then it’s tossed with a colorful plethora of other complementary fresh Mexican-style ingredients.
It has such a tantalizing blend of flavors that’s is makes the perfect chip dip, or its delicious served over salmon, shrimp, chicken or beef (we love the salmon option).
