MEXICAN CORN SALAD

A take on the official Mexican street corn salad, yet with some tasty substitutions and tweaks. This dish could be served as a side dish with dinner, then a scoop on your green salad for lunch with some additional protein. Personally, I enjoy eating corn in a salad versus off the cob, for a neater experience for my hands, face, and teeth.😉
