Sweet Corn Salsa

Sweet Corn Salsa is that delicious combination of sweet and spicy that is always a hit at summer get togethers.  Roasting freshly picked corn from the farm takes this dish to an over the top flavorfest!

I roasted the corn in a cast iron frying pan for about 10 minutes, turning as it cooked.  You can also toss it on your grill but to be honest, I just didn’t want to go outside in this  heatwave we’re having!

Fun Fact:  For every kernel of corn on a cob there is 1 strand of silk!

There are crazy big plants of basil at the farms so I decided to use it instead of cilantro and it’s a natural!  If you’d prefer cilantro though, go for it!

Creating salsas from freshly grown ingredients is one of my favorite things to do.  I have a rhubarb salsa that you would love too!

Sweet Corn Salsa with Asparagus Chips - Barrie Hill Farms

These tortilla chips came from the farm and are made from asparagus.  There are so many healthy alternatives now so we don’t have to ruin our healthy snack with sodium and calorie laden junk food.  I’m making up a healthy substitutions list so if you have some brand names to share, I’d love to hear about them.  That goes for all foods – sauces, chips, pasta, you name it.  I have been working on this list for awhile now so will share it soon!

In the meantime, don’t forget to share your awesome creations with us on Facebook and Instagram so we can shout them out to the world!  Just hashtag #barriehillfarms and @barriehillfarms so we can see what you’re up to in your kitchen.   Cheers!
