Mexican Corn Salad

Morsels of Life - Mexican Corn Salad - A Mexican corn salad full of the yumminess of Elote - cotija cheese and chipotle mayo combined with sweet corn.
A while back, I made some Elote since we had gotten some corn on the cob. We really enjoyed it, but we didn't have fresh ears of corn anymore, so I thought I could make something with corn kernels. These flavors work perfectly as a Mexican corn salad, and my favorite part? It's super easy to make! I'm always a fan of easy and yummy. Aren't you? You simply put all the materials together and mix. If you wanted even more yumminess, you could grill the corn first for that delectable grilled flavor. Either way, you've got a quick and easy Mexican corn salad!

    1. You and me both, especially when there's 3 kiddos to take care of! :) They usually have it on the side of the regular cheese section, but if you can't find it, something like Parmesan or Feta or a mix would work.
