Corn Relish

(4 Votes)
15 Min

Fresh and cut off the cob or flash-frozen, corn makes a great base for this goes-with-everything relish. Corn Relish is an all-American favorite recipe that's sure to be the hit of your next party, picnic or company dinner.

What You'll Need:
  • 8 ears fresh corn, husked (see Option)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
What To Do:
  1. Bring a soup pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the corn, cover, and return to a boil. Remove pot from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain corn and let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, parsley, salt, sugar, basil, and ground red pepper; mix well. Cut the cooled corn off the cob and add to the oil mixture. Add the tomatoes, bell pepper, and scallions. Mix well, cover, and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

Corn not in season? Substitute 2 thawed (1-pound) packages of frozen corn for the fresh or 2 15-ounce cans whole kernel drained.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

It looks good and easy to make, lbut how long do you boil the corn for?

After adding the corn to the boiling water, bring it to a boil again and then immediately remove the pot from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes. Thank you!
