I have made Mexican street corn the past several weeks for our #TacoTuesdays, but everyone has a Mexican street corn recipe. BUT not everyone has a roasted Mexican street corn salad recipe! It has all of the beloved flavors of traditional Mexican street corn, without all of the mess when you are eating it! Your guests will thank you later for this one.
We don’t have a grill so I used my oven to roast the corn. If you have a grill, you can roast the corn on your grill if you so prefer (instructions here). Another note, I used queso fresco because I couldn’t find cotija in my grocery stores. But if you can find cotija, feel free to use that as it is a bit more salty and will add a little extra flava flavvvv! (Omg did anyone watch that show? I’m embarrassed to say I did…..)
This salad would make the perfect side dish for tacos, fajitas, carne asada or even a simple chicken meal! I love dishes when the possibilities with them are endless.
I feel like I have a lot of caveats to note for you on this recipe- probably because it isssss so versatile- BUT I also think this salad would be really delicious cold too!
That’s all for this one, folks! As always, tag me in your recipes on Insta so I can see what you’re cookin up from my virtual kitchen to your real one!
Thanks for reading, happy #tacotuesday!
