Hi, guys! Today I have a tasty (and gorgeous) recipe for the freshest salsa you've ever tried! This colorful condiment is stuffed to the brim with freshly chopped tomatoes, avocado, bell peppers, red onions, and freshly roasted corn and seasoned to perfections with cumin, lime, and cilantro. If my family's reaction is anything to go by, you'll have a hard time not eating all of this delicious, crunchy salsa in one sitting!

This amazing recipe comes from the Sunshine Sweet Corn website and I was so excited to give it a try. I love salsas and I love crunchy veggies, so this was a recipe I knew I would adore.

I always thought the season for good corn was in late summer, but I was so wrong. You can get the sweetest corn right now.

April and May are actually the best times to buy corn because that's when it comes in from Florida. It always makes for an easy and fresh-tasting addition to your spring meals.

Sunshine Sweet Corn from Florida is non-GMO, extra tender, and regulated for quality control. It's the cream of the crop and so sweet and tender, once you taste it you’re hooked! I'm definitely going to be adding more corn recipes into my repertoire this spring.

This recipe calls for fresh roasted corn, but there's no need to fire up the grill, you can roast corn right in your oven.

How to Oven-Roast Fresh Corn

  • Fresh corn, shucked and silk removed
  • olive oil
  • sea salt


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Place your corn into a baking dish with room in between cobs.

3. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.

3. Roast uncovered for 20-25 minutes, or until a few of the kernels have started to shrink and wrinkle.

To remove the corn from the cob, just stand it upright and run a sharp knife down the cob!

Now let's make this amazing salsa recipe!

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, hand torn

  • your favorite hot sauce (for heat)
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh ground pepper to taste


1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.

2. Stir to combine.

Yes, that is a Quart-sized bottle of hot sauce. :)

This stuff is so good I could eat it with a spoon. Also, I may have eaten it with a spoon.

It's the perfect recipe for a party or even just a family meal. This would be amazing piled over pork tacos or on nachos. I could seriously just pile this over anything.

Also, veggies are good for you. :)

If you're "dieting", stop that. Or at least take a pause for a good-for-you bite (or 27) of the freshest veggies and natural seasonings you can get.

This sweet, fresh-roasted corn is not to be missed!

You can get Sunshine Sweet Corn now at your favorite grocer. Enjoy the salsa!
