Fresh Corn-Basil Salsa

Yields10 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time3 mins

For obvious, basil-and-corn-related reasons, this salsa is best on wonderfully hot summer days.

 5 ears fresh white corn, shucked (or 1 bag frozen white petite corn)
 ½ cup red onion, finely diced
 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
 ½ tsp salt
 ½ cup fresh basil leaves, julienned
 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced ( to taste)
1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the shucked corn, and boil for 3 minutes.

2

While the corn is boiling, prepare a large bowl of ice water.

3

After 3 minutes, drain the corn, then immerse it in icy water to halt the cooking process.

4

When the corn is cool, cut the corn kernels off the cob.

5

Combine the corn with the rest of the ingredients and serve.
