I mentioned in the last post that we got a great deal on some fresh corn (seriously! 6 ears for a dollar!) a few weeks ago. We optimistically bought twelve ears... and then got another 6 ears from the co-op a few days later. I was racking my brain trying to think of some good ways to use up our bounty, and came up with this quick and easy corn salsa. It is unbelievably good! I'm considering changing the name to "corn salad" so I can just eat it in a bowl with a spoon. It tastes so light and fresh and summery, and I love it.
4 ears fresh corn
1 small to medium jalapeño
1/2 red onion
2-4 cloves garlic
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper
Cut corn kernels off the cob, and add to a medium bowl. In a food processor, pulse the jalapeño, onion, and garlic, until finely diced. Add to bowl with corn, then add olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Mix and store in the fridge. Serve cold.
