Plant-Forward Mexican Corn Salad

Ingredients

4 cups corn
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper chopped
8 oz Package Cutting Vedge Plant-Forward Sliced Sausage
1/2 small red onion finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
6 green onions chopped
1 jalapeno pepper diced
1/2 avocado chopped
4 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp cumin ground
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper ground
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp mayonnaise

Directions

  1. Cook Cutting Vedge Plant-Forward Sliced Sausage in a large skillet with 2 TBSP Olive Oil according to package directions. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. Cut the corn off the cob. I used 5 ears to get about 4 cups. You can also use canned corn or frozen corn. If using frozen, no need to thaw it out.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the corn and stir it around. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until the corn starts to char, which is why we’re using high heat. If using frozen corn, you will need a couple minutes extra to get the right charred bits.
  4. Transfer the corn to a large bowl and let it cool for a couple minutes.
  5. To the same bowl, add the remaining ingredients. Stir everything together until well combined. Adjust lime juice and salt and pepper as necessary.
  6. To serve garnish with additional cheese and cilantro, if preferred.
