Fresh Tomato and Corn Salsa

Here is another wonderful salsa that you can serve as a side dish with anything. I like it because it uses corn and I like having corn for the sweetness. The recipe uses fresh corn, but if I don't have it handy I just use canned or frozen. And as usual I skip the heat:)

I sometimes add a clove of garlic, crushed depending on what I'm serving this with. Feel free to try and see if you like it.


FRESH TOMATO AND CORN SALSA

Ingredients:

1/2 cup fresh corn kernels (about 1 ear)
1 1/4 cups chopped tomato

1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Steam corn, covered, 2 minutes, and cool. Combine corn and remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
