Fresh corn on the grill is a regular menu item for us during the summer, but roasting corn in the oven is a great substitute and is especially good in this EASY Mexican Corn Salad recipe.

The secret to this delicious corn is basting it with mayo and roasting at a high oven temp (400 degrees) until it is tender and slightly charred. Don’t let the mayo in this recipe freak you out—it’s used sparingly and is a real game-changer!

Some of the best Mexican Street Corn I’ve ever eaten was when we were visiting our daughter in St. Louis.

We ate at one of her favorite local places, the Mission Taco Joint, where they serve warm, cheesy corn that’s “off the cob” with a zesty mayo dressing and a twist of lime. If you’re ever in the area, you must go try some!

The beauty of today’s recipe is that it requires very few ingredients—fresh corn, mayo, feta cheese, fresh lime juice, and sliced scallions or green onions—and can be ready start to finish in about 35 minutes.

And, an added bonus is that there’s very little clean-up. The corn is roasted on an aluminum foil covered pan for no-mess! (We don’t eat cilantro, but if you’re a fan definitely add some fresh chopped cilantro as the finishing touch.)
