If you love corn, you have to make this dreamy creamy side dish.
This is my favorite salad because I am a major fan of all the ingredients, especially that corn! Buttery corn is my weakness. Especially when its barbecued.
Also, there is something so satisfying shaving corn off the cob. I cannot explain the euphoria. And then biting into those big chunks in the salad – magnificent. If you like this salad you will love my Avocado Corn Couscous Salad or my Mediterranean Style Cowboy Caviar!
This sauce is everything ..with a little bit of mayonnaise and sour cream and that cotija cheese to tie it all together. Cotija cheese is similar in taste to parmesan cheese and in texture to feta cheese. Don’t forget to sprinkle the top with some extra crumbled cotija cheese and cilantro for aesthetic purposes. Big chef’s kiss and I need to make this again ASAP!
