In Mexico, they serve elotes callejeros on the street: grilled corn slathered with mayonnaise, cotija cheese, and lime juice.

Grilled corn is a must-have side dish at any summer cookout. Whether you're throwing some juicy burgers, marinated steaks, or maybe even just some chicken on the grill, the party just wouldn't feel the same without a little sweet grilled corn to enjoy with the main event. Like potato salad, macaroni salad, coleslaw, and peach cobbler, it's something that brings back fond memories for many people.

While there's nothing wrong with classic Grilled Corn on the Cob, sometimes, you want something a little different — maybe something with a Mexican twist, like this recipe for Elotes Callejeros (street-style corn) from the chef at La Esquina in New York City. It's slathered with an addictive blend of mayonnaise, cotija cheese, lime juice, and a bit of chile for some heat. Or maybe you prefer your corn off the cob — in which case, you may like this simple Summer Grilled Corn Salad with Feta from the blog Buttercream Lane, part of the Culinary Content Network.
