Southwest Salsa. This super easy smoky salsa featuring roasted corn is great on tacos, grilled meats, salads, and for chip-dipping. It tastes very fresh and adds a healthy zest to your meal.

Salsa is a popular condiment all around the world. Salsa is used as a topping on many dishes and also mixed into sauces and soups. Try my zesty cucumber pineapple peach salsa and my tomato salsa for a festive party and you’ll like them, too.

To make my Southwest Salsa, just mix together roasted corn, chopped tomato, minced jalapenos, sliced scallions, chopped cilantro leaves, lime juice and red wine vinegar. Season with cumin and salt. Let sit a few minutes to meld flavors and then serve.

Try my Southwest Salsa on my Tex Mex Bowl, my Ultimate Taco Salad and my favorite Ultimate Nachos. Add this salsa to my Tex Mex Buffet and Taco Bar for your next party.

Enjoy!!
