    Amaize-ing Mango Salsa

    by  • July 13, 2015 • salads, side dish, snacks • 0 Comments

    It’s salsa season!  Fresh ingredients are readily available & I had a couple of ripe mango in my fruit bowl, so I could’t wait to whip up some amaize-ing mango salsa with this gorgeous white sweet corn I got.  This corn is to live for–it’s so sweet & crunchy & tastes so darn good as is–there is no need to cook it at all!  And this salsa is great on anything … salads, corn chips, jicama chips, collard wraps, or just by the spoon full.

    Amaize-ing Mango Salsa – serves lots / makes 1 large bowl

    2 ears Amaize Sweet Corn, carefully slice off raw corn kernels into a bowl with a knife

    1 lime, juiced

    1 tsp sea salt or to taste

    2 ripe mango, peeled & sliced / or substitute 3 Medium Tomatoes for a reg toma salsa

    1/2 red pepper

    1/4 cup yellow or red onion

    1/4-1/3  cup cilatro

    1 serrano pepper

    Slice corn off the cob & into a bowl.  Squeeze lime juice over corn & mix in sea salt & set bowl aside.  Place remaining ingredients in the food processor & pulse chop until nice & chunky.  Mix ingredients from food processor into bowl with corn, lime juice & salt.  Toss well, garnish with a little cilantro & serve with your chips, salad or wrap of choice.  SO GOOD!

    I love a good slaw & adding in some fresh corn & herbs makes it extra special!  I used cilantro in this round of slaw, but dill would certainly be dill-icious too. 🙂
