This recipe was found in the 1997 cookbook, Vegetarian Planet. Preparation time does not include the 1 hour needed for the flavors of the salsa to develop.
- 2 cups corn (fresh is preferred)
- 15 large garlic cloves, peeled, sliced thin
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper, to taste
- 3 medium tomatoes, round, ripe, seeded, chopped fine
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1 jalapeno, seeded, minced
- 1⁄4 cup cilantro, chopped
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a roasting pan, combine corn kernels & sliced garlic & mix well.
- Drizzle olive oil over the corn, then add the water, salt & pepper, mixing well.
- Roast corn & garlic, uncovered for 20 minutes.
- In a bowl, combine tomatoes, corn/garlic mixture, lime juice, jalapeno & cilantro.
- Stir well, then let the salsa stand for 1 hour at room temperature to develop the flavors.
- Serve salsa immediately or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days ~ It is, however, best the day it's made!
