This easy Corn Salsa is bursting with fresh flavors! Super easy to make and serve with tortilla chips or as a topping on tacos, burrito bowls or baked fish.
If I was asked what my favorite food was, I most certainly would tell you Mexican. I usually have something at least twice a week to satisfy my cravings. I honestly think it’s the cilantro that I crave the most. I love chip and dip and between this corn salsa, this Cowboy Caviar dip and this easy homemade Guacamole recipe, I’m all set!
Even better is that most Mexican dips make amazing toppings on my favorite rice bowls or served on top of pan seared salmon or simple baked chicken.
FYI – I use this handy chopper to get my onions finely chopped.
