Grilled Mexican Corn Salad
This quick and easy grilled corn salad is a play on esquites, a wildly popular Mexican street food. Also known as corn in a cup, esquites are the cobless equivalent to elotes, grilled Mexican street corn topped with mayonnaise, various spices, and crumbled cojita cheese. A little brush of mayonnaise keeps the corn moist and golden, and squeezing lime juice over the final product adds a brightness that works spectacularly with the cheese and chives. If you can’t find cojita, use queso fresco, which is readily available in most supermarkets. Sprinkle on some chipotle powder for an added kick.
