Broccoli Olive and Corn Salsa Recipe

I'm just mixing up cultures as I see fit. All cuisines, from all over the world, have the human palate in common. They can blend in some amazing ways. 
This has a really fresh and clean flavor. It's light, but filling. Ideal for the end of summer. It just needs a little bread or rice to go with it. 

Make sure when you serve it to coat the bread or rice with some of that scrumptious sauce!
