Corn Red Pepper Salsa made easy!  Veggies drizzled with honey for a sweet, crunchy salsa for chips or garnish for spicy dishes.

If you like Pico De Gallo, you’ll love this Corn Red Pepper Salsa. Sweet corn and honey totally balances out the spiciness of the meat in tacos and burritos. As a salsa with chips, it is addictive! I had to make a second batch because I kept eating while taking pictures. Oops!

This recipe is just too easy for the amount of flavor that results. For even faster results, buy pre-chopped peppers and onions!


  • For extra heat, increase the Jalapeno from 1 pepper to 1 1/2 peppers or to your taste.
  • Lime juice is an essential ingredient of this recipe. Use fresh squeezed lime juice for the best flavor.
  • You can also taste and adjust the raw honey in this recipe, I like my Corn Red Pepper Salsa on the sweeter side, but you can use less.
  • For extra flavor, add a pinch of cumin!
  • I always say this, but the best results start with quality ingredients, so use the freshest you can find!

The honey-lime syrup is a game changer. Try it on other traditional vegetable combos like cucumber and onions. So yummy!
