Summer Medley Salsa

By Vickie Chynoweth

This is a refreshing salsa that goes well with fish, chicken, pork or corn chips. As this is a mild salsa, you may want to add a diced jalapeno pepper(s) for some heat.


1 ear of corn

3-4 tomatoes

1 large cucumber

1-2 cloves of garlic

1 small red onion

1 lime (juice and grated lime peel)

1-2 Anaheim peppers

1 bunch of cilantro

½ cup radish diced

½-1 teaspoon sea salt

Optional: Jalapeno pepper


Husk corn wrap in wet paper towel and cook in microwave for two minutes. Take out of microwave let cool for five minutes. Cut corn off cob and place in large bowl.

Peel cucumber and remove seeds with a spoon. Dice cucumber in half-inch pieces and place in bowl with corn.

Split Anaheim pepper down the middle, then remove the seeds. Dice in quarter-inch or smaller pieces. If you’re craving some spice, dice the jalapeno pepper in small pieces. Add to bowl with corn and cucumber.

Dice red onion, radish and tomatoes in half-inch pieces and add to the mixture. Mince the garlic. Chop the cilantro in desired size pieces.

Add the grated peel and juice from the lime. Mix in sea salt to taste.

Serve with meat as a condiment or as a salsa dip for chips, a baguette or other vegetables.
