Mexican-Style Street Corn Salad

Makes 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Hot sauce, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the corn and cook, stirring frequently, until the corn begins to brown slightly but is still moist, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
