A quick, easy and tasty corn salad with sriracha and lime!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups corn (about 4 ears), cut from the cob
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (optional)
  • 1/4 cup cotija (or queso fresco or feta), crumbled
  1. Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, add the corn, toss and let it sit cooking until charred, mix it up and let it char again, about 6-10 minutes.
  2. Add the red bell pepper, saute for a minute and remove from heat.
  3. Mix everything and serve warm or at room temperature.

Option: Grill the corn on the cob before slicing it off for the salad instead of charring it in the skillet!
Option: Add cooked and crumbled bacon!
