An easy recipe for Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad loaded with grilled corn and pasta and tossed in an irresistible sauce!
Earlier this year I went to Mexico for the first time! A bunch of my friends and I went on a cruise to Mexico, Honduras and Belize to celebrate one of my dear friends 50th birthday. Mr. Mother Thyme actually surprised me with the trip and I went with just my friends enjoying a week of R&R while he stayed home and watched the kids! I am one blessed and lucky mama!
The cruise was spectacular! I absolutely fell in love with Mexico! It’s hard to believe that I spent nearly 16 years as a travel agent and traveled all over the world but never got to Mexico until now! We spent a day in port in Cozumel and another in Costa Maya. Two days wasn’t enough. I told Mr.Mother Thyme when I got home to get ready to pack his maracas and sombrero as we’re heading to Mexico. From the beautiful beaches, the ambiance and of course the food I just absolutely loved it!
Who doesn’t love Mexican food? I seriously could eat Mexican food everyday. While I was in Mexico I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some authentic Mexican cuisine. I feasted on tacos, guacamole and lots of chips and salsa every chance I could. It was all I ever hoped for!
To celebrate Cinco de Mayo this week I thought I’d share with you my recipe for Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad. You guys, this salad is amazing! Mexican Street Corn, also known as Elotes is simply grilled corn smothered in a creamy sauce that consists of Mexican crema, cotija cheese, cayenne or red pepper for a little kick, lime juice and some cilantro. It’s one of the best things you’ll ever sink your teeth into. Seriously! It just takes your simple corn on the cob to another level or yumminess.
This Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad combines all that goodness from Mexican Street Corn and blends it into this delicious pasta salad.
