Today I’m sharing with you this fabulous Blueberry Corn Salsa Recipe because I just recently spent time with Iowa Corn at #IACornQuest and I was inspired to go home and get cooking with corn!

Well, technically this isn’t cooking. In fact you can throw this together in about 10 minutes and everyone will be hitting you up for the recipe! So don’t bring this if you’re an introvert and don’t want to be giving out the recipe all night.

The lineup here is super simple and the flavors come together so beautifully. It’s fresh and sweet with just the right amount of heat. Up until this past week temperatures here in Ohio were still toasty warm. I took this salsa to a potluck dinner at our church and it was a big hit. As I said I was inspired by all of the sweet and savory corn recipes on my recent trip to Iowa with some other fabulous bloggers.

 

There’s nothing like being with your peers in the food writing industry to really get your creative juices flowing. Certainly the talented and committed farmers energized us as well! Everyone was so welcoming; I hope you read about my short time in the great state of Iowa!

Don’t you just want to reach in there and grab a corn chip and get snacking? Don’t skimp on the squeeze of fresh lime and a bit of lime zest. Add some coarse salt and a few turns of the pepper mill and you have yourself an irresistible snack (or dinner if you are me!).
