Mexican Street Corn Salad

Posted in : Sides on by : tiffannybrandel

I am on a serious roll finding new summer side dish recipes!  I stumbled upon this beauty for Mexican Street Corn Salad on Six Sister Stuff website, and I thought it felt a little like my  Karen’s Corn Salad recipe.

You start this dish off by cooking frozen corn in a bit of olive oil, letting it char just a little bit.   While the corn is working, mix together mayo, cheese (the author suggests cotija or feta), Jalapeños, lime juice, cilantro, red onion, chili powder and s+p in a bowl.  Add corn when it is done cooking.  DONE!

Not only is this recipe quick and easy, but it is awesomely good!  The char on the corn is such a great idea, as it adds a rustic taste to the dish.  I used feta cheese the first time I made this side, but i used queso fresco the next time.  I like both cheeses, but preferred the queso.  The cilantro and red onion lend a fresh taste, while the chili powder and jalapeño add that mexican spicyness that is bang on!  Be careful of how much jalapeño you use…

Just FYI, I stored my leftover salad in the fridge overnight and I much preferred the warm version as opposed to the cold.
