Succulent sweetcorn Salsa

Updated: Apr 6, 2022

We visited an excellent local Mexican restaurant recently and one of the side dishes was a delightful sweetcorn salsa. I wasn’t cheeky enough to ask for the recipe, so here’s one I hope you will try. If you are vegan, simply remove the cheese.

It makes a great side dish to a Chilli or as an alternative salad. Serve with roast chicken, fish, turkey, steak, fish or whatever tickles your fancy. Or, simply eat on it’s own.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5-8 minutes


  1. 10 cherry tomatoes, chopped

  2. 200g frozen sweetcorn, defrost and cooked

  3. ½ red onion, finely chopped

  4. ¼ cucumber, seeds removed and chopped

  5. 1 avocado, stone removed, peeled and chopped

  6. 1 chilli, chopped and seeds removed

  7. 100g coriander, chopped

  8. Handful of mint leaves

  9. 1 lime, juice and zest

  10. 100g feta cheese, diced


Defrost the sweetcorn and cook, either on the hob or in the microwave, run under cold water to cool the sweetcorn, then place tomatoes, sweetcorn, onion, cucumber, avocado, chilli, coriander, mint and lime into a bowl, season to taste then mix well. Then sprinkle the feta on top.
