Elotes inspired grilled corn salad

Author Notes: My favorite grilled vegetable is Mexican street corn. This flavour packed salad takes the smokiness of the grilled corn, the zing of the lime, the heat of chipotle and the saltiness of the cotija and combines it with nutty grilled avocado to make the perfect grilled dish.The Gilded Sprout

Serves: 4


  • 3 Cobs of Corn
  • 3 Green Onions
  • 1 Avocado
