This Mexican street style corn macaroni salad is loaded with toasted corn, pickled veggies, and macaroni tossed in a tangy and flavor packed parmesan based sauce.
I unintentionally took a small break from blogging after Ramadan, even though I didn’t plan to take one. But usually when I am at my parents place, a very unavoidable laziness creeps inside of me. I’ve been trying to convince myself to just sit down and type the recipe and introduction for this salad forever. But, I don’t know why, I felt so disconnected with my blog and didn’t feel like being active here. I still have this sort of feeling, but I am forcing myself to post this and then I might get into the groove again, hopefully.
I am usually all for macaroni salads. I love it. The creamy dressing in this salad has the correct amount of tanginess and spice levels. I have added just the right amount of mayonnaise to give the salad a creamy texture without making it too heavy. Mix that with perfectly cooked macaroni along with few other fixings and you’ll get a delicious salad which can be eaten as main dish or side dish.

Omg! I’m sorry I forgot to mention the main ingredient. Thank you for letting me know. I’ll update it soon. It is 350g macaroni. And I used canned corn.
Made this salad and served it as a side to fish n chips. The flavours were lovely. Will make it again for a picnic. Enjoyed the spicyness from the jalapeños and crunch from onions. Used 300g cooked macaroni.
