Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

“I make this salsa ALL the time,” says Debb. “So easy and so tasty. Sometimes I mix it with a simple bean salad recipe and just have a bowlful for lunch!”

“Delicious and flavorful,” raves Arlene C. Pesigan. “I tried a sample after making it and it was refreshingly delightful! I used a 16-oz. bag of frozen white corn instead of the canned ones and just thawed before mixing everything together.”

“This corn salsa is awesome,” according to kthorn50. “I squeezed half a lime in it. Also, it's even better when it sits in the fridge. I guess the juices soak in better once it sits. It is really great and I've made it several times now to go on salad with chipotle marinated chicken breast.”
