The hot days of July are here. No one wants to be cooking in a hot kitchen. This month’s cooking is on lighter dishes using Sweet Corn and refreshing Summer Salads. The recipes are easy to make, light and full of healthy ingredients!
First dish up in the Power of 5 Test Kitchen is a A Mexican Corn dish – Elote we discovered and loved since we ate it at a Mexican restaurant in Sedona, AZ.
A blend of grilled corn, added to a whisked cream sauce made from a sour cream, mayo, spicy Jack/cheddar cheese (or Cotija cheese ( a Feta) or Queso fresco (a white Mexican cheese made from raw cow and goat milk), lemon juice, lime zest, dash chili powder, and scallion or minced onion & salt to taste.
Sound familar? Remember the Mexican Street Corn on the Cob I posted to The Power of 5 Test Kitchen Instagram acct a few weeks ago? The two recipes are almost identical . . . accept off the cob! Either one – on or off the cob shouldn’t be missed!
The recipe can be modified to uses all dairy-free ingredients….pared with a veggie burger & kale salad…delicious!
