Chipotle Corn Salad

Summer + Indiana = Corn. Sometimes we just want to shave it off the cob, like Chipotle does to make this corn salsa.
By | August 07, 2015


Husk corn and boil it.

Heat a large pot of water to a boil and then add the corn. Return to a boil and cook corn for about  10-12

minutes. Check it near the 10minute mark to see if it's done. The kernels should be tender.

While the corn is cooking, prepare the other ingredients as follows: chop the onion, deseed

(if you have organic peppers save the seeds for planting your own next spring!) and mince the jalapeños,

and roughly chop the cilantro.

After corn has cooked, remove from the water and allow it to cool.

Once it's cool enough to work with, use a knife to slice the kernels off.

In a medium bowl, combine the corn, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, juice of 1 lime, white wine vinegar,

salt, and pepper. Mix to combine.

Serve chilled with tortilla chips, as a taco topping, or even as a light side dish!
