  • 4 ears fresh corn
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 fresh lime, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin


Prepare the corn:

  • Husk the corn, rinse under cool water, and break into pieces to fit your pot if necessary.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the corn and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the corn from the water and let cool.
  • When the corn is cool enough to handle, cut the kernels off the cob with a sharp knife.

Make the salsa:

  • Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and mix well to combine. Let the salsa sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.
  • Serve as a dip with tortilla chips, or spoon over tacos, fajitas, nachos, or serve as a side dish to grilled meats. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
