What do you get when you combine a lunch favorite and a fun Mexican side dish?! The answer is this Mexican Street Corn Chicken Salad! It is sooo good! I ate this for multiple days in a row and never got sick of it! It is lightened up with nonfat Greek yogurt, which means it is also packed with protein. The raw corn kernels add a fun ‘pop’ of sweetness too! The seasoning is from Trader Joe’s. If you do not have a Trader Joe’s, you can make your own Elote seasoning with the copy cat recipe I’ve included here.

Here is what you will need:

  • Cooked Chicken – the macros here account for chicken breast. I like to make mine in the crockpot, but you can easily buy a rotisserie chicken and use that. Many stores now sell rotisserie chicken already packaged.
  • Corn on the Cob – I use raw corn in this recipe. Did you know you don’t have to cook it?! It is so sweet and refreshing this way!
  • Nonfat Greek Yogurt – Plain
  • Light Mayo
  • Red Onion
  • Cilantro
  • Queso Fresco – you can also use feta, which has more flavor and is a bit easier to find.
  • Everything but the Elote Seasoning – one of my favorites from Trader Joe’s. See below for a copy cat recipe in case you cannot find this.
  • Salt & Pepper – to taste

Everything but the Elote Copy Cat

  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
