Mexican street corn salad in a white bowl with grey napkin

Roasted Corn is fab this time of the year. I love the fresh corn grilled with some lemon and chili powder, or loaded on occasion. Elote style loaded corn can be a bit messy, so I decided to make it off the cob. Add to it some black beans for a heartier dip/salad and a dollop of chipotle mayo and you are ready for the Summer potluck!

I use corn kernels to make a super quick roasted corn in a skillet. When I have time I grill the corn, shuck the kernels as use. You can also  use preroasted/fire-roasted kernels. Many options! This roasted corn bowl is amazing as is as a dip, with some tortilla chips to scoop, or as tacos. Add a drizzle of chipotle mayo to take it to the next level. and of course loads of cilantro. Whats your fave corn side for summer?

    I skipped the cilantro (I know blasphemy!) and added finely dices avocado. Huge hit at lunch, my 81 year old father absconded with the elote salad bowl and bag of chips, found guarding it at the table like a rabid wolf 🙂
