Raw Corn Salad/Salsa

This past week in my CSA share I received 12 ears of corn.  Some of my family enjoys their corn on the cob the traditional way.  Heated up on the stove, which is fine.  I like to try to consume much of my food intake RAW.  Most people are totally unaware that you can eat corn raw..but you can.  I like to shave it right off the cob after cleaning it.   You can toss it into a salad, in a roll up or eat it out of the hand...you can even leave it on the cob and eat it that way!
I decided to make one of my favorite ways to eat it!

Raw Corn Salad/Salsa
6 ears of corn~cleaned and shaved off the cob
1/2 of a red onion corsely chopped
1/4-1/3 c. jalapeno's diced
splash of lemon juice
cilantro to taste
Mix and let marinate to allow the flavors to mingle
you could also add a dash of salt
other optional ingredients~diced red sweet peppers, diced celery or any other veggie you have on hand
you could leave out the jalapeno's and add the other veggies plus a bit of olive oil so that it is more like a  salad  rather than hot salsa
You might want to make a corn soup or chowder...
place it in the Vita-Mix and add water, salt, garlic, jalapeno, avocado, a little lime juice and blend
Be creatvive and Enjoy!


  1. I love corn but I won't buy it if its not organic...I am trying to grow my own...:)
