Quick Corn Salsa

I needed an appetizer that I could leave out for the whole night as we were renting the UFC fights and had friends coming over.

So I decided I would make Corn Salsa. I have had this at parties in the past, and always wanted to eat the whole bowl.

Side Note: I have a salsa addiction – any kind of salsa. I would eat chips and salsa for every meal for the rest of my life if I was given the option. 

I didn’t chop all the ingredients real fine as I wanted to make sure that everyone could pick out whatever it was that they didn’t like (I’m talking to all the onion haters out there). If you want to finely chop all the ingredients it will turn out just as good!


  • 1 Can Yellow Corn (drained)
  • 1 Can White Corn (drained)
  • 1 Can Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/4 of a Hot Pepper (I used a Jalapeño, but didn’t use any seeds and cut into chunks so it added heat but could be picked out)
  • 1/4 Red Onion (cut into thick strips)
  • The Juice of 4 Limes
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Cloves Roasted and Crushed Garlic (I tossed the garlic in a pan and got it really hot on the stove and then let it cool and crushed it but I can imagine roasting would have been great as well)
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

I chopped everything up, tossed all the ingredients in a bowl with the spices and mixed it up.

I have noticed that if you put it in the fridge overnight, the flavor gets much better.

Hi, I’m so excited your here! My name is Amanda. Welcome to my blog Dishes and Denim! Writing is my outlet. It grounds me. So, I decided to start a blog where I can share my life with you! I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My son Bradley was born April 1st, 2018. He is my entire world. Simple is my specialty. I don’t have a lot of extra time and the time I do have I want to spend with my family. I love cooking, cleaning, photography, writing, sewing and running. Maintaining an organized and clutter-free home is a priority. I have a mild obsession with buying photography props, notebooks, coffee mugs, and pens. If there was an award for overanalyzing – I would win every year. I’m a hopeless romantic. My favorite color is turquoise. My perfect day includes waking up to a clean house and having a Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte and fresh fruit waiting for me…followed by a long hot shower then bumming around town in comfy jeans and a perfectly fitting white tee and my denim jacket (taking pictures and visiting antique shops). For dinner, I would request a cheeseburger (red onions, pickle, and ketchup) with a side salad (Balsamic, no tomatoes) Then end the day relaxing on my patio with twinkle lights, a glass of Entwine Cabernet and my family (bonus points for a campfire and S’mores). If you want to know more about me you can either invite me out for a glass of red wine or check out some of my blog posts!
