Mexicali Corn Relish

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by luvcookn

This "relish" is really a tart salad that is excellent warm, at room temp or even slightly chilled. I makes a wonderful accompaniment to grilled chicken and meats.

Exactly what I was looking for. I served over steak tacos. I liked it better when it was hot (temperature-wise, not spicy-wise)
