Fresh Corn Pico de Gallo

This is the perfect poolside pico! Fresh summer corn mixed with tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice ... what's not to love?! Whip up this simple snack using the recipe below, and get out and enjoy some sunshine this weekend!

2 ears sweet corn, shucked
1 yellow onion
6-7 roma tomatoes
1-2 jalapenos (depening on your spice preference)
1 cup fresh cilantro
1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Chop the onion and tomatoes so they are about the same size (try and have equal part onion to tomato)
  2. Cut the kernels off the cobb, making sure to get the corners (this is the best part!)
  3. Slice your jalapeno(s) down the middle and remove the seeds (I'd suggest wearing gloves or making sure you wash your hands immediately after), then dice up a little smaller than the onion and tomatoes
  4. Rinse and roughly chop the cilantro
  5. Throw all ingredients in a bowl, cut lime in half and squeeze juice on top. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and stir to mix it all up.
Serve with tortilla chips. Sitting by a pool is strongly encouraged. : )

Enjoy, y'all!
