Fresh Green Tomato, Charred Corn and Basil Salsa

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Ingredients

  • 2 ears fresh corn, husks and silks completely removed
  • olive oil
  • 1 medium-large green tomato, cored and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 13 to 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed, cored, seeded, and very finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 generous tablespoons minced basil
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Rub the corn lightly with olive oil and place the pan on the top oven rack.
  3. Watching carefully–though this will take quite a few minutes–char the corn lightly, turning it one or two times.  (I even shut the oven door, despite using the broiler, to reduce the cooking time.)
  4. Remove the corn from the oven, cool, and cut the kernels off the cob into a medium bowl.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients, toss lightly to combine, and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
  6. Serve with chips, pita wedges, as a bruschetta topping, or spooned over pan-sauteed or grilled mini tofu or seitan squares.

Notes

In the summer since corn is so very sweet, you might want to add a little additional salt, balsamic vinegar, or even a little squirt of lemon juice to balance the flavors.
