    It was really good! I bought avocado oil before I realized it would taste exactly the same with olive oil and I just cut up regular tomatoes.

    Used canned corn but still turned out great lots of compliments and no leftovers

    This is a BANGER!! I added a whole lime, and had to use mozzarella because there wasn’t any quest fresco in the stores near me. I’m sure it’ll taste even better with it. So glad I tried this recipe.

    Yum! I should’ve salted it a bit more but we just added it to taste.

    Good! I used goat cheese instead of queso as it’s what I had on hand, and added guacamole.

    It was good, I think I may have used too much lime, I will definitely try again.

    Delicious! I baked my corn with a little oil and salt for about 2 hrs at 325°F. I also added avocado instead of tomatoes and added a little extra lime juice. I would totally recommend this!

    Loved it! I also added some grilled red and green peppers and used far less jalapeño then it calls for because I don’t like spicy. Grilled the fresh corn plain and it still had so much sweetness and flavor! The next day I added some grilled chicken and had it for lunch- super yummy! Will definitely make again. (Also omitted the oil because I didn’t have any and it definitely didn’t seem like it was missing it.)

    Good. Not as spicy as iI thought it would be. Not a tomato guy so I left those out.

    My wife loved it. I thought it needed the salt, she did not. So obviously we went no salt.

    Fantastic. I used frozen corn and just browned it in a skillet with avocado oil, sat & pepper, and I added some cumin and a handful of shredded cabbage to the end product. Turned out great. Really cool idea to turn the eloté into a salad.

    Amazingly simple and refreshing salad! I love anything cilantro and lime.... i grilled my corn on the cob and that did it! It gave it a smoky taste and the addition of fresh cilantro and queso fresco made it pop. Loved it... a keeper for me. (I did skip the jalapeños for the kiddos sake).....

    very yummy, i substituted the olive oil for mayonnaise and used the Trader Joe’s Chili Lime seasoning in place of the lime juice and chili powder and it was delicious

    i did this salad for my lsrtner and I z and it turned out fantastic!!! the only thing I added was a little bit of onion and roasted everything for about 5 minutes just for personal preference, corn was charred on the grill. absolutely fantastic and what I was hoping it would be!
