If you are looking for something new and different to top your BBQ’d fish or chicken with, or even just to dip your tortilla chips in, than I think I have it…

Blueberry, Corn and Basil Salsa

Blueberry Corn Salsa. I am not kidding. It is so crunchy and has all of the sweetness of the raw corn and blueberries with the tartness from the berries and the lime. Plus some savory (and crunchy!) red onion. The basil and a dash of olive oil rounds all of the flavors out and you just are left with a perfect summer condiment!
