I love my Grilled Mexican Street Corn recipe so much that I decided to make a salad version out of it with the addition of fresh tomatoes and black beans. The creamy sauce is so good you could almost lick it off the platter … so now not a drop of it goes to waste in this salad version of the recipe!
What is Mexican Street Corn Made of?
Traditional Mexican Street Corn is made by grilling corn on the cob and then coating it with a mixture of mayonnaise, sour cream, cotija cheese, chile powder, and lime. I’ve turned this recipe into an easy-to-eat salad version that is just as good.
Where to Serve Mexican Street Corn Salad
This would be the perfect addition to an outdoor barbecue or cookout. I love dishes like this that you can make in advance and then just quickly pull out later. Just don’t forget about them tucked away in the fridge when it’s time to eat.
I actually did that recently during our first post-quarantine outdoor gathering with two other families when the lockdown in NC was lifted! I guess I was so flustered by keeping everyone outside all night and putting together disposable plates of food (to reduce who touched the serving spoons) that I forgot something as essential as serving all the food I’d made.
