Smoky Grilled Corn Salsa

    It takes just a few minutes to prep all the vegetables but then you can sit back and relax while they grill. A nice adult beverage, a good book, and about 15 minutes later, everything just needs a quick chop. I combined the remaining ingredients in a jar that had a screw on lid and just shook it to combine. I am not a fan of cilantro, so I used parsley instead. So good!
