I struggle to find side dishes to go with my Mexican meals. Of course there are the obvious choices like rice and beans but beyond that - I'm at a loss. My normal vegetable side dishes like broccoli and green beans just never seem to compliment Mexican fare. Soooo... what's a veggie lovin girl to do when she's at a loss for vegetable side dishes? Well, this girl turns to Pinterest. That is exactly where I found the inspiration for this delicious Mexican corn salad.
I made a similar side dish in 2012 based on the delicious corn sold on the streets of Mexico. Creamy, salty cheese sprinkled over mayonnaise coated corn cobs equals great Mexican corn.
Since it's not fresh corn season right now, I opted for a similar recipe using frozen corn. I'm not certain that this is an authentic Mexican side dish but it sure is delicious.
Heat oil in skillet. Add corn and cook until slightly charred.
Transfer to bowl. Add lime juice, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Add mayonnaise and cheese.
I served my corn salad with red rice and Mexican lasagna.
A yummy Mexican side dish that's delicious and simple to make.
