Salads at the Barbecue Party #1 - Easy Corn Salsa

I know, I know, it's been over a fortnight since the barbecue party and I still haven't posted a lot of the recipes. I'm sorry about that. It's just been really busy around here and that coupled with a little weekend getaway and a couple of projects I'm working on (more on that later), left me wondering where the days went. Before I get absorbed in the days chores, I've decided to start putting up the other recipes one at a time. I also want to mention that these recipes make quite a bit, so please adjust the quantities to suit your requirements.

Easy Corn Salsa

1 cup corn kernels, boiled
2 onions, peeled and chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1-2 green chillies, finely chopped (optional)
Salt, to taste
Sour lime juice, to taste
Crushed black pepper, to taste
2 tbsp. Chopped fresh coriander leaves

To boil, the corn kernels, I put it in a pan with a little water and a pinch of salt. Don’t add too much water. Once it comes to a boil, I simmer it for a minute or 2 on a low flame. I like it to have a little bit of crunch. But you can boil it to suit your liking.

In a bowl, tip in all the vegetables.

Add the salt, lime juice and pepper to taste.

Add the chopped coriander leaves.

Toss again. Cover and refrigerate till you’re ready to serve.
