California Street Corn

California Street Corn

It’s fresh corn season in California!

Can I get a woot woot?!

 

We buy corn by the truckload at our house and will have it for dinner at least three times a week. We started preparing it “street style” after seeing a similar version on vacation last year. We changed it up making the mayo layer a bit spicy by adding jalapeno and chili powder to the mixture and boy, does that add a ton of flavor!
