Mexican-Style Corn Salad

I used crème fraîche instead of sour cream because I didn’t have any sour cream around. It made the salad pretty darn tangy. But I like that kind of thing. You don’t have to.

4-6 servings

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the corn, and cook for 5 minutes. Drain and cool, then cut the kernels from the cobs. In a large bowl, combine the kernels, tomatoes, cilantro, cheese, and scallions.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, hot sauce, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Pour this mixture over the corn mixture and combine well. Season with more salt, pepper, and hot sauce if you think it needs it. Serve.
