Roasted Mexican Street Corn Salad

Do you want to prepare healthy and nutritious Mexican street food? Then Roasted Mexican Street Corn Salad is what you need.

I rarely prepare salads and usually, it is a Roasted Mexican Street Corn Salad. It is so healthy, easy to prepare, and quite unusual. I love the idea of eating corn on a salad.

However, this dish has more ingredients than just corn such as avocado, cheese, herbs, and scallions making it even tastier than you thought possible This creamy salad, called Elote, is sold on the streets of Mexico by vendors.

The roasted Mexican Street Corn Salad is crunchy and spicy, with just a touch of creaminess. This is the perfect salad to please guests and family members.

Salad is spiced up with diced chilies and cayenne, but the spiciness is evenly balanced by honey and sour cream. adding avocado gives richness and creaminess to the salad. Such a delicious and nutritious Mexican salad will be definitely on your weekly menu!

Salt & Pepper As the name of the recipe suggests corn is roasted for this salad. You can roast the corn on stove flame to achieve a smoky flavour.

Salads can be served warm or cold, depending on your preference. This dish makes an excellent party dish and can be prepared in advance.

In Mexico, Cotija and feta cheeses are used, but if you can’t seem to find them, you can use very soft cottage cheese (paneer). The sweetness of corn should be balanced with enough lemon and salt to taste.
