This is a really delicious and addictive salsa with a smoky flavour from the grilled vegetables. The recipe is from the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen (August 2009). Make a batch of this versatile sauce, then serve it all week. You can spoon it over grilled fish, chicken, or meats—or use it to fill quesadillas or burritos. It's even good served as a bruschetta on a sliced baguette.

Directions

  1. Prepare barbecue (high heat). Brush bell peppers, corn, and green onions with some olive oil. Grill vegetables until well charred in spots, turning occasionally with tongs and removing pieces as they brown, 5 minutes for green onions, 10 to 15 minutes for bell peppers and corn. Cool slightly. Cut bell peppers and green onions into 1/3-inch pieces. Cut corn off cob.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in heavy small skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cumin; sauté until garlic begins to sizzle but does not brown, about 30 seconds. Pour into large bowl; mix in lime juice and hot sauce. Mix in vegetables. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool completely; mix in cilantro.
