Simply grill the corn on the cob and the jalapenos. Slice the corn off the cob into a large bowl. Dice up the jalapenos. This is where you control the heat, leave the seeds and ribs of the jalapenos for extra spicy goodness. Or remove them for a less spicy bite.

    Oh my gosh!!! My husband and I were JUST commenting on how much we love Mexican style grilled corn. This Salad version is pretty genius. LOVE that idea. I’m MAKING this next week for sure…. Adding cotija and corn to my grocery list now!! Do you think tossed with some spinach it would be good? Maybe toss in some rotisserie chicken for protein? Trying to think of a way to turn it into a whole meal —- and avoid turning on the oven in this heatwave Seattle is currently having!

      Maria, thank you so much! Not so sure tossing the chicken in would be good but grill it and serve the salad as a side. Thank you for coming by. I totally understand not wanting to heat the oven in this heat, it’s miserable.
