{Grilled Sweet Corn Salsa}
Serves 6-8
2 ears white sweet corn on the cob, shucked
2 roma tomatoes, diced small
1 red bell pepper, diced small
1 green pepper, diced small
1 jalepeno, diced small and seeded (unless you want it hot you can keep the seeds in)
1/2 red onion, diced small
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1 lime, juiced
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
salt (to taste)
fresh ground pepper (to taste)
To grill corn:  Preheat your grill.  Shuck the corn, and spray a little coating of olive oil on it.  Place your corn over a medium heat grill, and grill for about 10 minutes rotating the corn every few minutes to get nice grill marks on every side.  Remove corn, and cut the corn from the cob.
Place corn and the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well.  Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with tortilla chips, with fish, steak, eggs, you name it!
Happy Grilling!
