Mexican Grilled Corn Salsa

Tangy spice and fresh flavour, Mexican Grilled Corn Salsa a summer condiment for added dimension to burgers, salads and tacos.

Things I love about summer cooking:  cooking outdoors.  From appetizers to mains and everything in between.   Reasons every gas grill I’ve ever owned has a side burner?  Lobster boils and corn.  Dam I love the stuff.  A quick blanch, a light grill then slice the kernels off the cob, toss with lime, spice and onions – and serve.

This is a condiment that holds for days in the fridge so it’s an easy make ahead item.  We paired Mexican Grilled Corn Salsa  with Adobro Lime Mayo on our Avocado Chicken Sliders, which are now a household favorite.
