I made my first batch of pickled onions a few months ago and haven’t been able to stop. The jar sits in my fridge, and I just grab a little forkful for tacos, salads, nachos, even avocado toast. They add the prettiest pop of pink.
There’s a lot to love about elotes, or Mexican street corn. Think grilled corn on the cob fancied up with lime juice, chile powder, and cotija cheese. But, this dish posed two problems for me. First, I don’t have a grill. Second, I really dislike one of the main ingredients: mayonnaise.
I love the combination of lemon, Parmesan, and cracked pepper with this asparagus salad, but there are lots of other flavors you can try: sun dried tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, mozzarella, or even chopped pistachios.
