Roasted Poblano Corn Salad

Posted by Callies Biscuits on

I'm always looking for an excuse to have a margarita! Cinco de Mayo was a little different during quarantine, but we still had a family Mexican Liberation celebration. Along with a quenching margarita, comes the inspiration for a great meal. This year we made Cerveza Soaked Carnitas and I thought this was a fitting side.

Since May, I have since made this Roasted Poblano Corn Salad numerous times. Fresh corn, roasted poblanos, red peppers, and cotija cheese... my mouth is already watering! I've been using poblano peppers like they're going extinct. I'll be sharing more recipes that use them soon!
