Blueberry Corn Salsa

Blueberry and Corn Salsa

Blueberries and corn.

An unlikely combination you don’t often see together and your first clue this might not be your everyday salsa.

Would you believe me if I said the combination is full of potential?

Three possibilities depending on whether you use it as a salsa, relish or salad.

Blueberry Corn Salsa
Grilled corn,  blueberries, jalapenos, red pepper and red onion are all gussied up with lime and cilantro. The summertime flavors come together quickly and easily for a chip dip, side dish or topping to liven up steak, chicken, fish and even tacos. Yes, I said tacos! As in shrimp, fish or chicken tacos.

Turns out blueberry and corn is not such a crazy idea after all!

No matter how you chose to serve it, or what you chose to call it. It deserves a special place on your summertime menu!

    Summer is the perfect time to experiment with adding fruits in savory dishes and this salsa looks like an experiment gone oh so right!

    This is certainly a combination I wouldn’t have thought of but it does look good.  I can’t wait until it’s blueberry picking time here in a couple of weeks!

    If you say the combination is full of potential then I for one absolutely believe you!!! 

    I’m trying to imagine the juicy plump blueberries “popping” alongside the charred corn and I get all tingly inside. I’m definitely not ruling this one out, Reeni. I believe, I believe…

    Thanks for sharing…

    P.S. The Picnic Game is coming along quite nicely. I have four dishes so far and boy oh boy if they’re any hint of what’s to come, we’re gonna be stuffed again this year!!!
