Mexican Corn Salad is an easy side dish recipe. Our corn salad combines fresh corn kernels, jalapeno, scallion and spice. Add fresh lime and cojito cheese and every spoonful is bursting with flavor.
Elotes , the traditional Mexican street food, is corn on the cob that’s charred on the grill giving it a smoky flavor.
I’ve turned this classic street food into a side dish salad, no grill necessary.
Rich mayonnaise balances the heat of the jalapeno and spice, lending a creaminess and bits of cojjito cheese add a milky flavor with a salty note.
