    newmama's Note:

    I got this recipe from Trader Joe's after trying a sample because we loved it. Posting it here for safekeeping! Great for BBQs and picnics because it won't spoil in the heat. I left out the green onions and used a couple tablespoons of a good balsamic vinegar. You could easily add other veggies to this too!

      I love Trader Joe's and am always looking for new ways to use their products. I bought the corn salsa today and made a few modifications to this recipe including adding black beans and substituting celery for the cucumber and red onion for the green since that is what I had in the house. Loved it! I'm sure i will use this corn salsa other ways too since it is really delicious!

      I had no corn in chili sauce nor balsamic vinegar; so I used a 14oz can of corn and mixed with a 10oz chiki garlic sauce and the juice of one lime. Delicious but to spicy; should have used only ½ of the chili sauce.
