My Favorite Corn Salad Recipe

I found this amazing recipe on Pinterest before our last beach camping trip. I've made it three times now and it only gets more delicious each time.

For the most part I followed the recipe with one exception - I didn't cook the corn and I think this makes a big difference. It's more fresh this way. I definitely prefer to use the green onions as well and slightly less mayo than the recipe calls for. Here is my version.

Four ears of sweet corn husked and cut off the cob.

1/2 cup cilantro.

1-2 cloves garlic.

6-8 green onions chopped.

1/2 cup crumbled Cotija cheese.

2 avocados.

1/2 jalapeno, seeded and chopped. You can use a whole one too, but I'm too sissy for that!

1.5 tbsp olive oil, 1.5 tbsp mayonnaise and the juice from 1-2 limes.

1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp chili powder and mix it all up!!

We brought it as a side dish to Aunt Abby's house for dinner. The leftovers make for a great lunch!

The kids hung out.

We had good food and a good time!
