  • 3 teaspoons fresh lime juice, or more to taste

  • Set aside for at least 20 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

Recipe Notes

This simple fresh salsa really dresses up quesadillas. It was so good, I can't wait to make it again while fresh corn is still in season.
But in a pinch, I think it would be fine made with thawed frozen, or canned drained corn too.
