Mexican Street Corn Salad

Colorful, crunchy and a little bit spicy - this Mexican Street Corn Salad recipe features the traditional flavors of a popular Mexican street food called elote or grilled corn slathered with a chili-lime sauce. Instead of the traditional fresh sweet corn, we use frozen roasted corn because it's packed with flavor and can be found any time of the year. Try it as a yummy side dish salad or add it tacos and bring the flavors of Mexico to your home!
