Mexican Street Corn Salad is a delicious side dish recipe made from grilled corn. This corn salad is a loaded version with black beans and a few other add-ins. The dressing is creamy and a little smoky, with just the right amount of zing from the lime juice.
Grill your corn, then cut the kernels from the cobs. If you are not able to grill it, heat a large skillet and add the olive oil. Then add the corn, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper, and 1 garlic clove (pressed). Cook the corn kernels until you get a little bit of browning on them. Add corn to a large bowl.
Chop all of the veggies and cilantro. Then press/grate the garlic. Add to the bowl.
Add the black beans to the bowl.
Mix the dressing ingredients together.
Stir the dressing into the salad until well combined.
Serve with your choice of garnishes.
Serve warm or cold.
