Spicy Lime Corn Salad

 Corn Salad

I recently discovered a variation of this recipe Spicy Lime Corn Salad on Pinterest and I knew it was a keeper... after I put my own spin on it of course!  I had two events coming up including Tasha's 4th of July Party (more on that here and here) and my Little Man's birthday party (more on that soon!).  For both events, I needed a yummy dish that wasn't too complicated to make and could easily be served buffet style.  This dish did just that!  Now that I have made it a couple of times, I have learned that you can double it easily and you can make it the night before and keep it in the fridge.  It tastes just as good the next morning.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Ears of Corn2013-06-29 14.49.05
  • 1 Green Onion, chopped fine
  • 1/2 Sweet Red Pepper, chopped fine
  • 1/4 Cup Mayo
  • 4 Tsp. Lime Juice
  • 1/2 Tsp. Ground Red Pepper (Cayenne)

Put the corn onto a cookie sheet and into the oven at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.  Trust me, it actually works!  Leave the corn in its husks and it will turn out juicy and perfect!

Next, combine all of the other ingredients to make the dressing.  This is where you can really customize it to your taste.  The amount of green onion, red pepper, or cayenne that you use is really up to you and your taste buds!  I have listed the amounts that I use as a guide.

Once the corn is cooked, take a knife and cut all of the corn off of the cob.  (This part reminded me of when I was 11 and had braces and couldn't eat corn off the cob!  I do not miss those days.)

Corn in Oven

Now you are ready to mix the corn and the dressing.  Serve it now or cover and put into the fridge for safe keeping.  Take out and serve once all of your guests have arrived!
