Corn-Tomato Relish

I’m back to blogging, thanks to Valli for another edition of Blogging Marathon. This is the 8th edition and I join the 2nd group of 20 bloggers who are all set to blog for the next one week. I chose “Condiments” and “Cooking with 5 ingredients or less” as my themes for this week. So you will see 4 lip smacking condiments and 3 easy to put together 5 ingredient dishes.


For the first day of the marathon, I made this fresh, no-cook Corn & Tomato relish that goes well with some corn chips or as a side for tacos. Use the freshest corn and tomatoes you can find for the best taste. Also I read somewhere that it is best to use corn as soon as you buy them; if you keep them too long they start to develop starches and make the veggie mealy.



Recipe is from Martha Stewart’s “Everyday Cooking” magazine.
Ingredients:
Corn kernels – from 2 ears, about 1cup
Tomato – 1 medium, finely chopped
Green onion – 1, thinly sliced, crosswise
Cilantro – 2tbsp, finely chopped
Green chili/ Jalapeno – 1, finely chopped (remove the seeds & veins if you cannot handle heat, I left them in)
Lime juice – 1tbsp
Salt & Pepper – to taste



Method:
  • Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. 

Now wasn't that easy to make. This relish can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have been cooking up for Day 1 of BM# 8.

Sending this relish over to Valli's "Condiment Mela" & Aipi's "Bookmarked Recipes-Every Tuesday" events.

  16. I love anything with corn. You used raw fresh corn? No need to grill or roast the kernels?

  17. Thank you everyone.

    Valli, Thank you so much. My husband helped me make the header and I'm so glad you commented on it.

    Usha, I used farmer's market fresh corn and it was so sweet and tender--that last pic with the chip went right into my mouth after clicking and the whole bowl followed suite. But I'm sure grilled corn would work well too, just a little more work.
