Hey—Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and if you’re looking for something to serve other than the tomato based salsa, how about whipping up some yummy charred corn salsa? Not that there's anything wrong with tomato salsa but you know what? A girl can only eat so many kinds of jarred tomato salsa before she gets bored and starts look at other forms of produce to be the star of her salsa.
Peel and de-silk two ears of fresh corn.
Place the corn directly on the grill and moderately char. Remove corn from grill allow to cool. Remove the kernels from the husk.
To the charred corn, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, 1/2 red onion finely chopped, juice from 1 lime, 2 diced avocados, 1 finely chopped and de-seeded jalapeno, 1 handful of cilantro, finely chopped, coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Thoroughly blend all ingredients together and serve with blue tortilla chips.
