  • 3 (11 ounce) cans whole kernel corn

  • 2 large tomatoes, diced

  • 1 large sweet onions, cut into thin strips

  • 4 green onions, chopped

  • 1 bunch cilantro leaves, minced into tiny strips

  • 2 limes, juiced

  • cup rice vinegar

  • kosher salt to taste


  1. In a large bowl, combine the corn, tomatoes, sweet onion, green onion, and cilantro. Squeeze lime juice over mixture, and mix in. Stir in rice vinegar to taste; the amount you use will depend on the sweetness of the corn, and the acidity of the lime. Season with kosher salt.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute fresh corn that has been cut off the cob. Just blanch the corn briefly in lightly sugared and salted water.
