Everyday Food Corn and Tomato Relish

I love making tacos and make them frequently. I have tried just about every store bought salsa available and have not found any that are as good as homemade. Since I make salsa so often I try to vary up the type of salsa I prepare based on personal preference and what fruits and vegetables are in season. The last month corn has sprung up all over the place at great prices, so I have been trying a number of corn dishes. The June issue of Everyday Food had a recipe for Corn and Tomato Relish, which was perfect for the chicken tacos I was preparing as a main dish.

This recipe has 7 ingredients and takes only minutes to prepare. I followed the recipe as stated with no modifications. The only problem with working with fresh corn is getting all the silk off completely. The best way I have found to take silk off of fresh corn is to rub them with a dry paper towel, works like a charm and makes using fresh corn much easier!

I loved how fresh and light this salsa turned out. It was a great accompaniment to the Chicken Tacos  I made as a main dish. This salsa would also be great with tortilla chips and is very easy. A great way to use fresh corn, that literally only takes minutes to prepare.
