Have you ever thought about pairing corn with chili powder and hot cheese?! I definitely didn’t! But, I will absolutely be making this again!
This zesty corn salad is bursting with flavor! From the cilantro, to the fresh lime juice, chili powder, and hot habanero cheese. So, so tasty! Especially when you top it off with sliced grilled chicken.
I had a hard time deciding what to call this delightful creation; summer salad, corn, lime and cilantro salad, spicy corn salad…the list goes on and on! But I finally decided on zesty corn salad with grilled chicken. I figured it had the best “ring” to it.
5 ears of corn, cooked and corn removed
juice from 1 lime
a handful of cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/3 cup hot habanero cheese, grated
grilled chicken breast
1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the corn, lime juice, cilantro, chili powder, habanero grated cheese.
2. Top with grilled chicken.
3. Enjoy! (Keep a glass of water near by, this gets hot!)
