Be sure to try these other summer recipes too:
Corn: I love using fresh, uncooked corn in this recipe. Simply give it a quick rinse, cut it off the cob, and you're good to go!
The sweetness of the fresh, raw corn is part of what I think makes this one of the best corn salsa recipes.
Bell Peppers: I love using several different types of bell peppers to add different flavors and colors.
Fun fact, did you know that red bell peppers are the sweetest of all the bell peppers?! This article breaks down the different flavors and uses of bell peppers.
Jalapeño Peppers: I usually remove most of the seeds from my jalapeño peppers to control the level of spice. If you prefer more spice, leave the seeds in when you slice the peppers up. If you don't want your salsa to be spicy, remove all seeds when prepping.
Red Onion: The extra flavor that red onion brings to the table is so delicious! Add more or less depending on your personal preference, just make sure it is fresh.
Lime Juice: I always prefer to use fresh lime juice in my recipes. I find that the flavor is so much better and fresher (yum!!).
Cilantro: The cilantro is another key flavor component in this recipe. The bold and bright flavoring brings this dish to life!
Salt: I use just a little salt in this recipe which helps to make this fresh recipe a great option if you're looking for a low sodium salsa.
Substitutions and Additions
Roasted Corn Salsa: If you want to add a little extra flavor to your vegan corn dip, you can roast the corn before adding it to the rest of the ingredients.
Black Bean and Corn Salsa: Simply drain, rinse, and add a cup of black beans to your salsa mixture if you want to add some protein.
This is one of my favorite unique salsa recipes and was originally intended to be served as a cold corn dip with tortilla chips, but there are so many other delicious ways to enjoy this veggie salsa.
Corn salsa for tacos, nachos, or burritos is the perfect way to bring your Mexican recipe to the next level.
You can also turn this recipe into a vegan corn salad by adding it to a bed of fresh lettuce and adding a light lemon vinaigrette.
