Corn Salsa

Corn Salsa with Roasted Poblano Pepper

Corn Salsa with Roasted Poblano Pepper

This vegetarian family enjoys Mexican food on a weekly basis so I am always on the lookout for new (but still healthy) variations to keep things interesting.

This recipe comes to us from our friends at Edible Education Experience where my daughter spent some time learning some valuable cooking and eating tips that she will keep with her forever. Thanks, Janice & Chef Allyson for inspiring teenagers to grow and cook their own food!

Vibrant colored corn, bright red onion, aromatic cilantro, tangy citrus juices, jalapeno peppers, how could it get any better? It does …

To give this corn salsa an authentic flavor, we added a secret ingredient … a poblano pepper roasted to perfection, peeled and tossed into the mix.

Corn Salsa that is Easy, Homemade, Delicious, and Vegan!

You can use this corn salsa as a topping for Mexican Quinoa (yesterday’s recipe in case you missed it), or layer it in a burrito or a taco or eat it right out of the bowl (that is how I like it best :)).

Many people think Mexican food is difficult for vegetarians but see … it’s not! This comes together nicely in under 20 minutes and is great as a leftover snack or lunch the next day.  Make this ahead and you will be a superstar when you pull this one out on a busy night!! Who needs takeout???

Recipe Notes

Thank you Edible Education Experience and Chef Allyson for introducing us to this fabulous Corn Salsa recipe which was fabulous to start but we added our own twist to with the poblano pepper because any chance I get to roast a vegetable I take it! 🙂
