Roasted Red Pepper-and-Corn Salsa

Randy Mayor; Mary Catherine Muir
Yield 5 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
To keep the corn from drying out on the grill, soak the ears in water first. You can grill the corn and bell peppers at the same time, but check the peppers earlier, since they cook faster. The salsa is great as an appetizer or as a topping for grilled meats, fish, or poultry.

Ingredients

  • 2 ears corn with husks (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
