I have to admit that I’ve never had Mexican Street Corn on the Cob, but I’ve always wanted to try it. Especially since Nacho Libre is one of my favorite movies. They eat it a few times in that movie and I’ve always wondered what it tasted like.
Last night I made this Mexican Street Corn Salad and I got a taste of Mexico. I’m pretty sure this salad has a lot more flavor though because it has lime juice, feta cheese, jalapeno, and cilantro. You guys, it’s delicious!
I made chicken tacos last night and this salad was the perfect side dish. We even put the salad in the tacos and it made them even more delicious! So let’s get on with the recipe, shall we?
