Elote Corn Salad is a summertime must-have!
Elote or Mexican Street Corn is a treat for the tastebuds! We’ve turned this beloved dish into a delicious salad. Elote Salad, or Mexican Street Corn Salad, is a quintessential dish for any summer gathering.
Elote Corn is corn on the cob that has been roasted on a grill and coated with mayo (or crema fresca), chili powder, and cojita cheese. (See our Elote Corn recipe here). Of course, our Elote Salad incorporates all of these flavors but we also added a few ingredients to take the deliciousness-factor to a whole new level!
Start by preparing several ears of corn elote-style. Then, remove the corn kernels from the cob. Next, toss the corn kernels with the other ingredients: jalapeño, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, smoked paprika, and chili powder. Lastly, top the salad with a generous amount of cojita cheese.
Be sure to add corn on the cob to your next grocery list and give Elote Salad a try. It’s the perfect side to any summer meal and a must-have at summer barbecues and cookouts.
