The Ultimate Spring Meal: Mexican Street Corn Salad

Mexican Street Corn Salad features that sweet and savory combination we all crave in a seasonal meal. Pair that flavor duo with a refreshing kick of cilantro for summer vibes with every crunch.

When it comes to making Mexican-inspired foods, I love incorporating lime juice, cilantro and chili powder. This recipe in particular combines all three ingredients with Vital Proteins® Original Collagen Peptides ($25; shop now on, an unflavored and odorless collagen powder that helps support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints when used as part of a daily wellness regimen.** This Mexican Street Corn Salad is delicious on its own, when paired with a protein (we’re big fans of chicken or shrimp!) or when served as a hearty side dish.
