Step By Step Instructions:

Grilled Corn and Heirloom Summer Salsa 

Last week I was over loaded with Green and Red Heirloom Tomatoes, and a ton of fresh, Summertime Corn! I was so excited to have all these fresh produce items, but I had no idea what to make 🙂 After doing some research I decided that Summer Salsa was a must! It’s good on Tacos, Taco Salads, it’s the perfect Summertime Dip, travels well, and it’s just so delicious and perfect this time of year! I must thank The Produce Box for featuring this recipe on their website and social media, and for consistently delivering the best produce available in NC! 

Here is what you do:

1. Set your oven to 375

2. Leaving the husks intact, place 2 ears of corn on a baking sheet pan and once it’s up to temperature, place them in the oven 

Note: Using scissors, I cut some of the strings off the tops of the cobs before placing in the oven, optional

3. Bake the corn for 30 minutes, flipping them to the other side halfway through

4. Remove corn from oven after 30 minutes, and set aside to cool 

5. Chop your tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro, and add them to a medium sized mixing bowl 

6. Drizzle the salsa mixture with lemon flavored EVOO

Note: Any EVOO will work just fine 🙂 

7. Sprinkle the mixture with a dash of sea salt and fresh ground pepper, and then add in the juice from 1/2 a lime. (Adjust the seasonings and lime juice to your liking.) 

8. When corn has cooled, remove the husks and strings, carefully cut the corn off of the cobs, and then add the corn the to salsa bowl. Mix well, taste test, and adjust accordingly!

9. You can chill before serving if you like, but it will be perfect as is, enjoy!
