Bring on barbecue weather! Roast some corn with your grilled meat!Jump to Recipe
While corn isn’t quite in season yet, the emerging Spring sunshine has me thinking ahead to summer barbecues and the taste of sweet corn.
Making up a batch of roasted corn salsa is a great way to get a jump start on enjoying those summer flavors.
The onion, cilantro, lime and peppers can help to mask the fact that you’ll probably be using corn that isn’t quite at the height of sweetness.
Corn salsa is more versatile that you might expect. Use it in a taco, or pair it with grilled meat of any kind. This salsa is the perfect complement to a barbecue-centered meal.
