Corn Salsa

I ate this delicious salsa with tortilla chips, but I think it would be great on top of tacos or burritos as well. It should be fairly cheap to make--great for big summer parties. Fresh corn will taste the best, but frozen can be used too.

Corn Salsa

1 jalapeño pepper
1 cup cooked corn kernels
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp chopped red onion
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Put on disposable gloves before cutting the jalapeño. Then dice the jalapeño into small pieces. The heat comes from the seeds and white parts, so if you want it to be mild, cut out all of those. If you don't have gloves, rinse your hands with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer to get rid of the remaining jalapeño oil on your hands (otherwise you're going to be in for a surprise when you take out your contacts).

Combine all ingredients and chill for several hours.
