Mexican Street Corn Sausage Salad

Elote, a Mexican street food classic, are grilled ears of corn-on-the-cob that are generously dressed with a creamy mayo-based sauce, a squeeze of lime, a sprinkle of chili powder and a shower of cotija cheese. This salad combines all of those summery flavors into a shareable, portable dish with the addition of Eckrich® Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links for an extra pop of flavor and protein.
