  • Summary

    The corn salad that fills these tacos makes a great side dish as well. If you are averse to raw corn, you can always blanch the kernels in boiling water for one minute before proceeding with the recipe.

    Ingredients

    • 2 3/4 cups fresh corn kernels (from 4 ears)
    • 3 ounces cotija or mild feta cheese, crumbled (2/3 cup)
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest (from 3 to 4 limes)
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 3 limes)
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves (from 1 bunch)
    • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions (from 2 scallions)
    • Coarse salt
    • 12 corn tortillas
    • 2 ripe mangos, peeled, halved, pit removed, and sliced into long, thin pieces
    • Lime wedges, for serving
