Elote is the Mexican street food of your dreams: a grilled ear of corn dressed with mayo, chile powder, crumbly queso fresco, and a squeeze of lime. We translate the dish into a fresh zucchini noodle salad (trust us, you won’t be bored of abundant summer squash with this recipe). If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a julienne peeler. You could also cut the squash into thin planks and then slice into thin strips.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; toss. 

Step 2

Combine sour cream and 2 teaspoons water; drizzle over zucchini mixture.

Step 3

Top with cheese and ground red pepper.
