Use fresh cooked or frozen thawed corn in this recipe. It's fabulous with grilled or roasted corn cut from the cobs.

This salsa is versatile and can be made to suit your tastes. Add diced plum tomatoes or green bell pepper to the salsa or use mild chile peppers instead of the jalapeno peppers. Or add about 1 cup of drained and rinsed black beans. The possibilities are endless!
