This Mexican Street Corn Salad also called Esquites, is one of my favorite summer side dishes! Simple, fresh ingredients create a very tasty dish for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations but also summer picnics and BBQs!
This beautiful and delicious corn salad is a deconstructed version of the Elotes, a Mexican dish of grilled corn on the cob. I will be honest and say, I prefer this version! Corn on the cob can be messy and my toppings always fall off so this salad is my perfect solution to enjoy the wonderful flavors of corn, cotija cheese, jalapeno and lime!
