How often do you waste time on the phone listening to “thank you for your patience, a customer service representative will be with you shortly”?
Yesterday, as I was on hold for what seemed like hours (but was actually less than 8 minutes), I was able to put together this easy, 5 ingredient mango corn salsa. If you count the salt and pepper-it’s technically 7 ingredients. And if you follow these simple directions, you’ll be saying (in your best Ina Garten voice) “How bad can that be?”
Easiest Mango Corn Salsa
- A bag of Trader Joe’s frozen roasted corn (I used 1/2 the bag, cooked)
- One red onion ( I used about 1/2 cup, chopped)
- One ripe mango, cubed
- 1/4 Cup of chopped cilantro
- Zest and juice of 1 lime, you may need 2 if they’re small
- salt and pepper to taste
Grab a medium size bowl, and add all of the ingredients and stir together. Adjust the salt and pepper to your taste. It can be chilled in the fridge for a while and it is delicious on its own, or with chips or any Mexican style dish you are making. Last night we had black beans and rice and this salsa was the perfect topping.
Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
See you in the kitchen soon,
