Mexican Street Corn Salad

All the flavors of traditional Mexican Street Corn in the ease of a salad you can make ahead! Serve warm or chilled!


  • 12 ears of fresh sweet corn
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons Tajin Seasoning more if you want - add to taste
  • 1-2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped more for garnish if you want
  • ½-¾ cup crumbled cotija cheese
  • lime wedges to serve optional


  • Shuck and wash the sweet corn, grill on medium-high heat until corn is slightly charred and cooked, about 10-12 minutes. Allow corn to cool and cut off the cob - I used 12 ears of corn and yielded approximately 6 cups of corn.
  • In a large bowl combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, lime zest, Tajin Seasoning and cilantro- stir to mix into a dressing
  • Add your corn and cotija cheese to the large bowl with the dressing and toss to coat all the corn with the dressing and mix in the cheese.
  • Serve! Can serve immediately at room temperature, can serve cold from the refrigerator or you can reheat in the microwave for a warm side-dish.
