Mango-Corn Salsa

mango corn salsa

The story behind this recipe is that last year, we harvest a garden full of corn. I mean LOTS of corn. Some of it was eaten fresh, but for the majority of the corn, we removed the kernels, boiled, and froze it. So now I have an over abundance of corn with more than I’ll ever use and nothing to do with it. If anyone has a creatively unique method of cooking corn please let me know!

I finally forced myself to cook with it and this recipe fit the bill. There are plenty of corn salsa recipes hanging about in cyber space and I noticed that a touch of cumin is the secret for an exceptional corn salsa. Instead of sugar or honey, I added mango for sweetness. The light flavors produce a summer salsa perfect for a picnic.

Flavor combinations

Add jalapeno for heat or more onion for that “oniony” Spanish bite. Paprika would be a nice addition if you like that smokey depth.

Note* This salsa can be eaten with chips or it would be delicious on fajitas, sandwiches, or wraps.
