Summer never tasted so good! Hart Country hotdogs topped with elote salad made with fresh sweetcorn from the garden, it's summer on a bun. Elote is typically made to top grilled sweetcorn, but we took it a step further and turned it into a salad to top our hotdogs! It's a great refreshing recipe that can be easily tailored to your liking.
Start with grilling a package of your favorite Hart Country hotdogs and 2-3 ears of fresh, husked sweet corn. (It's ok to boil the sweet corn instead. Grilling brings out a caramelized flavor.)
Then, combine the dressing:
- 1/2 c mayo (More or less to your liking. Can also add a mix of sour cream + Mayo)
- 1/4 c cotija cheese for authentic flavor (can certainly use a simple shredded colby or taco seasoned shredded cheese)
- sprinkle cumin
- sprinkle chili powder
- sprinkle smoked paprika
- dash of black pepper
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 2 tbsp lime juice
Once the corn cools slightly, cut the kernels off and add to the dressing.
Place hotdog in buns, top with elote and enjoy summer!
