Corn Salsa is a healthy and nutritious dish which is made with corn kernels. Add different vegetables like chopped onion, chopped tomatoes, chopped bell peppers and chopped carrots (optional) to this. Then garnish with lemon juice, salt and red chili powder. I love this corn salsa a bit spicy, so I added chopped green chili and red powder to this Mexican salsa.
Corn kernels themselves offer a wealth of nutritional benefits. It contains dietary fiber which helps to decrease the cholesterol in the body. It also contains Vitamin B6 which decreases the risk of heart disease and vitamin A which promotes eye health. Along with corn kernels, other vegetables like bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes and onions are added which all promote good health as they are all rich in vitamins and minerals.
This salsa makes a healthy option for breakfast as you can have it with your pancakes by topping it instead of butter. You can also serve this as a side for lunch or dinner. It is great as a healthy snack. Kids love it too. You can reduce the spiciness mentioned in this recipe but omitting the green chili and red chili powder while serving it to your kids.
You can serve this salsa topped on bread during parties too. It is always a winner everywhere. When I took this salsa in my lunch box to office, my lunch mates went gaga over it and loved it. My hubby simply ate it for breakfast and kid loved to have it stuffed inside 2 slices of bread as a sandwich.
