Pinterest Party & Link-Up (vol 8): Corn & Tomato Relish

Welcome to the RoL Pinterest Party. Join me every 2nd and 4th Tuesday as we link up and share how we made, cooked, baked, crafted, did, or created one of the pins on our Pinterest boards.

Not on Pinterest? No problem. Link-up your own creation to inspire us so we can pin in to our own boards. It can be a recipe, sewing project, Catholic craft, homeschool project, organizing/ homemaking tip, themed birthday party, whatever you’d like.

Don’t have a post ready? The link-up will be open for 10 days so there’s still time. Plus, feel free to link up a new post or an older post that hasn’t had much traffic lately. (NOTE: Since there are 5 Tuesdays in July, I’m keeping the link open until Aug 6 so you have plenty of time. 🙂)

Don’t have a blog? No problem. Post your photo and a description on the RoL Facebook page. 🙂

I know it is summer and I wish I could say that we have been frolicking at the beach and soaking in the sunshine but on the central coast of Cali we do not get our summer until fall. Right now it is cold, foggy and dreary. I’m looking out the window as I’m typing and there are two women walking by our house and one of them is wearing a parka. A parka, people!

So it is gray outside and I had a cup of hot soup for lunch. I’d share the soup recipe but I do not want those of you sweating out the heat to send me death threats so I’m going to fake it and pretend that the sun is shining and I see beautiful blue skies like this…

…and then I’ll share a quick and easy corn and tomato summer side dish. The original recipe is from Bobby Flay but I don’t think of it as a salsa since there are no chilies, making it perfect for my kiddos.

I make this all the time in summer since there is bountiful fresh corn and tomatoes waiting to be eaten. And it is a perfect dish to share at a beach or park potluck where food sits out in the sun.  You’ll find the original recipe here and my slightly altered version below.

Ingredients:

6-8 corn cobs, cleaned and cooked*
24 cherry tomatoes, chopped
2 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

(To be honest, I don’t usually measure any of this. It is a handful or two of tomatoes, 1/2  a bunch of cilantro, 1/2 a lime, a couple dashes of olive oil, etc. So play around with it. Next I want to try it with roasted corn and add avocado.)

Directions: Chop the tomatoes then toss them in a colander with ½ teaspoon of kosher salt. Let drain for 10-15 minutes. Clean the corn and cook in boiling water for 6 minutes. Cool. When done, remove the corn from the cob. Combine the corn, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, lime and olive oil. Mix well. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Enjoy!

* Note: Although you can also use thawed frozen corn, nothing beats the incredible taste of fresh corn!

Now it’s your turn.

1. Choose your creation, share about it and snap a photo if you can.

2. In your post, link back the original blogger/idea, rather than your Pinterest pin. That way credit goes to the proper person. 🙂 (But feel free to add your Pinterest profile link so we can follow you!)

3. Add a link back here so others can play along. Here is the html code:

4. Link up below. Make sure you’re sending us to your actual post, and not to your general blog address.

You have 10 days to post your link, so if you can’t get things done by Tuesday, no worries, put it up when you can. We’ll be here. Have fun!
