Corn Salsa: An Easy Summer Appetizer

One of my favorite ways to eat in the summer is just grazing on some good snacks and appetizers. Homemade guacamole, a cheese plate, taco dip…you name it, I’ll be standing by it and eating. This corn salsa is something that my mom started making a few years ago. It’s always a hit! It’s light, refreshing, and filled with good flavors. The best part is that it’s one of those recipes you can tweak to your taste. You can’t mess it up!

I like using fresh cooked corn, but you can certainly used canned/frozen, too. If using frozen or fresh, just cook it before mixing with the other ingredients. I usually eyeball the ingredients, but I’ve included some measurements. You can also add in a bit of fresh lime juice for a little extra bite!

I serve it with Tostitos Scoops, since you can get a nice heaping scoop in just one chip! I serve it fresh, but it will also keep in your refrigerator for a couple days…if you don’t eat it all by then!

Let me know if you make it!

    I make the exact same, but instead of the dressing I just use lime juice. It’s healthier and that lime flavor is amazing!

      Yes! I’ll add that note – I didn’t realize that eating raw corn was a thing until I was asked this question a couple times, haha!

    Ohh that sounds delicious! We make a similar recipe, the ingredients are the same except we add black eyed peas, cucumber, and green pepper. Next time I’m going to add lime juice!
