Corn freshly cut from the cob and blanched makes this dish taste amazingly sweet and fragrant. However, if you're pressed for time, thawed frozen corn will do.
If corn is fresh, cook until just crisp and tender. If frozen, thaw.
Toss together corn, zucchini, tomatoes, bell pepper, jalapeño pepper, onion, and cilantro.
Drizzle lime juice over mixture and fold until blended.
Sprinkle with cumin and salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate.
Black beans or black-eyed peas can be substituted for corn in this salsa recipe. To make fruit salsa, toss diced peaches or mangoes with minced onion, peppers, cilantro, and lime juice.
