Kawalsa Salsa’s Roasted Tomato Fresh Salsa

One of the things I love about eating locally and seasonally is that you get to really indulge in a foodstuff when it’s in season.  It forces you to get creative and expand your recipe repertoire and come up with different ways to eat the same thing day after day.  The perfect example of this is tomatoes (yep, they’re still in season).  Do you notice a trend with my posts lately?  No, I’m not just obsessed with tomatoes, but this is the time of year they’re at their best.  After reading Tomatoland, I don’t eat tomatoes out of season, or if I don’t know the origin.  So I eat as much as I can when they are in season!

I can’t take any credit for the recipe I want to share today.  I read this on the Ottawa Citizen Style blog, and knew I had to try it.  It really was delicious.  Roasting the tomatoes and peppers gives it an added depth of flavour that puts it ahead of previous salsa recipes I’ve tried.  The only change I made to the recipe was that I had some leftover corn on the cob, so I cut off the kernels and stirred them into the finished product (I used about 1 1/2 cobs, boiled – but I bet if you grilled them it would be even better!)
