Elote salad is the perfect way to enjoy those flavors you love about elote—a little bit spicy, a little bit creamy, and a whole lot of yum—without feeling guilty about eating too much! Elote salad originates in Mexico, and is popular in the southwestern United States.
It's a delicious side dish to serve alongside your favorite grilled meat or fish. It also makes a filling, healthy lunch or dinner when paired with whole-grain tortillas!
