Extremely fresh and crunchy, not your typical salsa! This is my husband's special treat for NASCAR Race Days. Can be frozen for up to 3 months with some loss of texture.

Instructions Checklist

  • Place ears onto the heated grill; roast corn until husks show burn marks on all sides and corn kernels are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Turn ears of corn often.

  • Let corn ears cool until they can be handled; pull back husks and cut the roasted kernels from the ears. Place kernels into a large salad bowl.

  • Lightly toss corn with black beans, plum tomatoes, green bell pepper, red onion, jalapeno peppers, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic. Pour tomato juice and tomato sauce over the salsa; toss again. Season with kosher salt and black pepper.

  • Chill salsa at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.

First time I made the salsa as written it was good. I made it again with the beans on hand which were not low-sodium and I have to say it tasted even better. I did rinse the beans to rid them of excess salt and it may just be me but I could tell the difference. We used it to top tacos in quesadillas as well as a dip for chips. Also I added just a dash of cayenne. It's now a raceday staple. Thanks for posting it. Read More

It was just okay for us. Lacked seasoning. We didn't care for the tomato juice/sauce combo either. Read More

Great salsa! I used canned diced tomatoes and instead of tomato juice I just used the liquid from the tomatoes which worked well. Only regular black beans on hand so I used those. I had to use canned corn so I dried it very well and sort of 'roasted' it in a pan (I know it's not the same but it worked). Everyone really enjoyed this...I will def be making it again YUM!
