Ingredients

  • 8 ears of fresh corn on the cob
  • 2 fresh jalapenos
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4-5 green onions, diced (we used green tops only)
  • 1 cup Cotija cheese

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt adjust to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to 400ºF.
  • Grill the corn and jalapenos for 15-20 minutes, turning frequently, until lightly charred.
  • Carefully cut the corn off the cobs into a large bowl. Chop and seed (if desired) the grilled jalapenos and toss in the bowl with the corn.

  • In a small bowl mix the dressing ingredients. Pour over the corn mixture and toss to combine.
  • Add the Cotija cheese and gently toss to incorporate.
