Grilled Corn Salsa

Grilled Corn Salsa

The organic sweet corn we have been receiving has been a wonderful addition to our CSA shares.  While it is fantastic just grilled or boiled and served as a side, it also makes a great addition to salsa.  Pair it with some peppers, onions, and tomatoes and it becomes a tasty appetizer or a great topping for fish or chicken.

1 medium onion
2 jalapeno peppers
2-3 sweet peppers
