Street Corn Salad

This is super duper delicious! I love Mexican street corn but it's not always easy to eat on the cob (for kids) nor fun to get stuck in your teeth. So I created an easier way to enjoy it and was able to turn it into a salad! I broiled the corn to get it a little crisp and blackened on the outside and juicy on the inside. You'll love this!

Street Corn Salad
  • 1 large bag frozen corn
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (do not use Miracle whip)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Place corn in broiler pan and toss in oil until well coated. Add salt and chili powder. Broil for 15-20 minutes (stirring every 7 minutes) or until part of corn begins to blacken a bit. Remove from oven and place in a bowl. Stir in mayonnaise, fresh squeezed lime (entire lime) pepper, cheese, cilantro and extra chili powder if desired. Serve warm!!
