Spicy corn salad inspired by Mexican street food
Elote salad recipe
If you don't know what "elote" is, it's basically a corn on the cob on a stick with plenty of fun stuff on it – like lime, chilli powder, cilantro, cheese and other toppings. The Mexican treat is usually eaten as street food.

I went to Mexico a long time ago and I remember a vendor selling his Elote in a red Solo cup. He mixed everything together instead of serving it on the cob. Recently I was craving an elote and I decided to make a sort of corn salad with elote toppings: it was one of the best things I've eaten since the start of the pandemic.
Chilli & Lime seasoning
Let me know if you try this and if like me you have elote cravings!
