Spreads and Sauces

Tempting Meal Highlight

Once this corn salsa is in your repertoire, it will find its way into dips, salads and chili, the sweet corn balancing the savory pepper and onion combination and tempering the spicy jalapeño. No cooking involved here, so nothing can beat this salsa for a last-minute highlight to almost any meal. Frozen corn is often crisper than canned, and if fresh corn is in season, cut it right off the cob for a special treat.
