2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

2 cups frozen corn, thawed and patted dry

1 tablespoon lime juice

1/4 cup roasted tomato salsa

1/2 small red pepper, thinly sliced

1/4 cup sliced green onions, green only (about 3)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. When hot, add corn and cook, stirring infrequently until corn toasts and browns slightly on all sides.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the lime juice, remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, and the roasted tomato salsa. Add the toasted corn kernels, sliced red pepper, and the sliced green onion. Toss to coat with the dressing. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
