Fresh Corn Salsa

I enjoyed this recipe at a potluck and made a few changes. It is fresh and sassy!

When corn is fresh in the summer, we love to use it in different ways. We plan to make this fresh corn salsa again. It's a touch sweet from the corn and kiwi, but tangy and has a hint of heat from the jalapeno. Kiwi in salsa is definitely a different ingredient but it works. We paired ours with some lime tortilla chips and it was the perfect bite. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
