Yes, it’s Cinco de Mayo which means many, many people will be celebrating even if they are not from Mexico. Probably the most popular way that we’ll all be enjoying this day is with food. I’ll be making a beautiful taco bar and one of the dishes that’ll be part of my spread is Grilled Corn Salsa.
With only 5 ingredients, you might think it’s just “one more thing” you can add to your taco. Well…friends, this salsa is far from boring. It’s crunchy, lightly smokey with a little heat and packed with fresh flavors.
I hope you’ll trust me and make this delicious salsa whether you’re having a fiesta or not!
