I had 1 ear of corn left and I didn't want it boiled or wasted. I had a few minutes so this is what I came up with. Super quick & easy. Have it as a side, a topping or a by itself (yep, it's that good!) .

Corn Salsa/Relish 2-4 servings

1 ear  peaches & cream corn, roasted, cooled and taken off cob

1 small red onion, diced

1 small tomato, seeded & diced

1/2 lime, juiced. Lime juice is used, only.

1/4 tsp chili flakes

1/4 tsp fresh black pepper

1/4 tsp salt

6  fresh basil leaves, julienned

1 tsp fresh oregano, rough chopped

Mix all ingredients together. Let sit, covered in fridge for at least 3-4 hours to let the flavours develop. Enjoy!

Corn Salsa/Relish

Just a couple of ways I used the Corn Salsa/Relish.

Try it this weekend. It's light & refreshing. Are there any quick recipes, that taste really good, that you like to put together?

Enjoy the long weekend (Civic Holiday in some parts of Canada.)!

Till next time,
