How about a Mexican Street Corn Salad? This is the traditional street corn (aka Mexican corn on the cob) loaded with lime juice, spices and a sprinkle of cotija cheese — in salad form! The dressing is made with just a few ingredients and it’s perfect to serve at all your summer barbecues/picnics!
¼ cup mayonnaise
½ teaspoon chipotle powder (or more!)
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice
salt and pepper, to taste
3 cups roasted corn kernels, (thawed if frozen)
½ cup red onions, diced
1 large avocado, diced
1 jalapeno, seeds/ ribs removed and diced
½ cup chopped cilantro
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled
DRESSING: Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. I added about ½ teaspoon of salt to begin with and ¼ teaspoon of black pepper.
ASSEMBLY: Combine the ingredients for the salad in a large bowl. When ready to serve, add the dressing and stir until the dressing is evenly distributed with the salad ingredients. Check for seasonings, add additional chipotle powder, garlic, or salt and pepper if desired. Allow to cool if you’d like to serve cold.
Salad ingredients and dressing can be prepared and kept separate until ready to serve.
