Roasted Corn Salsa

"This is a "gotta try" recipe. You won't believe the flavors! It takes a little time to grill the corn, but it's well worth the extra effort. This is a perfert summer recipe when there's an abundance of tomatoes and corn is at its sweetest."

    Delicious corn salsa! The only additions I made was to add about 1/4 tsp. cumin and some minced garlic. Also, added additional lime juice, but these are just my preferences. Otherwise, made as directed. I made this appetizer to go with my New Year's Eve goodies. Made for the Let's P A R T Y tag, December, 2011.

    Very fresh and vibrant salsa. Perfect for dipping! We are going to try it with some carne asada this evening and I am sure it will be fantastic!

    Very good! We had this in addition to Recipe #59224. It would be a nice side for almost anything grilled though! It had a very "fresh" summery taste! Thanks for posting!

    a great start for me! i changed a few things--roasted the corn in the oven, and left out the green and red peppers. i also used three jalapenos, which i'll cut down to two next time! it still turned out really well. thanks!

    Made this with left over roasted corn. Yummy!!! I used it over a grilled turkey breast. Good with chips, too!!!


<p>I live in Northern Indiana with my husband of 37 years and best friend, Evan. Due to unfortunate circumstances and God's grace, we are raising our two beautiful grandchildren from our daughter, Chris, who lost her battle with breast cancer after a hard, four year battle. It is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. God has blessed us with these kids and it is an honor to be able to raise them. That's not to say, it's easy. Organization is the key. We do lots of meal planning and advance preparation. <br /><br />Evan &amp; I enjoy eating out at fine restaurants and then trying to re-create gourmet meals at home. Unfortunately (?) we are such good cooks that we are usually disappointed when eating out because we know that what we prepare tastes better (and less expensive). Therefore, we usually only order something that we haven't made at home. <br /><br />We love to cook together and spend many hours cooking for family and friends. Quite honestly, Evan is the better cook in the family. He has a knack for knowing what flavors and spices blend well together and has created many original creations. <br /><br />I love to find and try out new recipes - which is why I visit Recipezaar often. We've added many of your shared recipes to my public cookbook titled Permanent Edition. I only post recipes that are our favorites and feel that others will enjoy them. I look for ease of preparation AND outstanding flavor. If I post a recipe that's a little more work, it's because the end result deserves the extra effort. <br /><br />If we had a month off with no work, no responsibilities, and no financial issues; we'd spent time on the ocean in Oregon. My husband grew up in Seattle and spent summers at Cannon Beach (Oregon). I've only been there twice but absolutely love the area. <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img alt= /><br />src= border=0 alt=Photobucket&gt; <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
