Ingredients needed:

  • corn
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • green onions
  • red onion
  • cilantro
  • olive oil
  • lime juice
  • white wine vinegar
  • jalapeño 
  • garlic

About the sun-dried tomatoes:

Use oil-packed tomatoes. The dried tomatoes in a bag will just be too dry- even if re-constituted with water. The tomatoes packed in oil are so much softer and more flavorful. Plus, there is olive oil in the recipe anyways, so it all works well together.

  • cups fresh corn kernels
  • 6 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), drained and chopped
  • 6 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
  • 6 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 6 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon seeded and minced fresh jalapeno
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, minced


  • In a medium bowl, combine all of the salsa ingredients. Set aside at room temperature for about an hour. Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for fish or grilled chicken!


  • *To cut corn easily, cut end off of the corn and set it cut-end-down inside a shallow bowl. Use sharp knife to cut down from top to bottom and let the corn kernels gather in the bowl.
  • *If the onions are bothering you while chopping them, put lime juice directly on the chopped onions- it neutralizes them.
