Everyone loves Mexican street corn, but did you know you can also have it as a salad? This perfect Mexican side dish will blow your mind with its perfect flavors but at the same time act as a dip, appetizer or salsa if you want. Its probably one of the easiest dishes to make but is also way underused.

Let’s change that today and make corn salad a staple in your home!

  • 1 bag, 14 oz, frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/2 cup real mayonnaise ( I only use Hellmann’s)
  • 8 ounce crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic ( I like fresh!)
  • juice of 1 lime (use a lime squeezer)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • dash of black pepper

Tip: My frozen corn was frozen. So I microwaved it to cook/thaw it. When I mixed this, the corn was warm. And I loved the salad that way! But, I refrigerated it’s good that way as well. So I think this would be a great warm dish or cold; it’s versatile.

Psst….Turn this into Corn Dip

This Mexican Street Corn Salad reminds me of an appetizer that is really good hot, but also really good if they’ve sat out for for hours at a party.
