Mexican Street Corn Salad

It’s true this is the quintessential summer salad.  When fresh corn, tomatoes, and lettuce are plentiful and full of sunshiny good flavor and the cilantro is bursting out of the herb garden this salad just can’t be beat.  But it turns out it’s a flexible little salad, and as the weather grows cold, it pairs wonderfully with a hearty bowl of beef or chicken chili.  It has garlic, lime, chili powder and jalapeno for spice and tartness, plus salty Cotija cheese crumbs and creamy avocado chunks for more tastiness.  Try adding some chili-lime powder from Trader Joe’s for an extra kick!
