Fresh Corn Salsa

I’m making the most of late-harvest fresh corn as summer sadly comes to an end, but this Fresh Corn Salsa is almost just as yummy using frozen corn. This simple corn salsa is a real crowd-pleaser, I recently served it with tortillas and grilled meats for a taco-night with friends, but it’s also great as a quick side-salad or as a snack with some corn chips.

Fresh corn with spicy jalapeños, cumin & paprika in a creamy greek yoghurt dressing with a dash of lime juice. This corn salsa is typically served with mayonnaise, but I find greek yoghurt gives the right amount of creaminess without the added calories. Crumble some feta (or cojita if it’s available) over the top, and scatter with a good handful of fresh coriander. Simple and delicious!
