mexican corn salad

I'm a sucker for Mexican food, so finding healthy recipes that have a little Me-hee-co flair is always a treat. This sweet corn is covered in a lime mayo, chili powder, and cojita cheese. YUM! Thank you, Skinny Taste for getting my taste buds buzzing.

Ingredients: 
  • 4 large fresh cobs of corn
  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice (from half a lime)
  • 1 tbsp minced cilantro
  • 2 tbsp scallions, minced
  • 1/2 cup (40 g) cotija cheese, grated
  • 5 lime wedges for serving

Directions:

Boil corn in boiling water for 5 minutes, remove from heat. When cool enough to handle, cut corn off the cobb. (makes 4 cups)
