This simple 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. Anything I can add some yummy Mexican flare to I’m all in.
This simple corn salsa is one of those that you can’t get enough of. Seriously! My favorite is just the scooping it up with tortilla chips. Have you ever tried Trader Joe’s blue tortillas? Love them!
But, it’s also amazing as a topping on my favorite rice bowls or served on top of pan seared or baked fish like salmon.
FYI – I use this handy chopper to get my onions finely chopped.
