Corn Salsa Recipe – a bright, delicious corn salsa recipe that is made with simple, real ingredients and is ready in no time at all!


  • 12oz corn (grilled, boiled or frozen)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered (more if desired)
  • 12 jalapeños, diced (remove seeds and white membrane)
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
    2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin (optional)


  1. Add ingredients to a medium-sized mixing bowl. 
  2. Stir to combine. 
  3. Taste and add any additional salt, cilantro or lime juice. 
  4. Serve with your favorite corn chips or in a Steak Burrito Bowl!


  • Jalapeños: I highly recommend removing the seeds and white membrane so that the spice level isn’t too spicy – but if you like it spicier, then feel free to keep them.
  • Add-Ins: diced avocado is also delicious in here!
  • Storage: store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
