This healthy and easy salsa is full of spicy Mexican inspired flavors. The balance of light and fresh ingredients with roasted and deep flavors will be savored until the last bite is enjoyed. Health Boost: Roasting the vegetables in this recipe does two things - increases the antioxidant lycopene in the tomatoes and adds more flavor to the dish, which means the recipe doesn't need as much salt.
1 tablespoon canola oil
4 Roma tomatoes, quartered
1 medium jalapeño, halved with seeds and stem removed
1/4 red onion, cut in half
1 ear of yellow corn, kernels shucked
1 cup cilantro, roughly shopped (additional whole leaves set aside for garnish)
3 garlic cloves, whole
Juice from 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
Best enjoyed with tortilla chips!
