Mexican Street Corn Dip
Mexican street corn, or elote, is a beloved street food-on-a-stick found all across Mexico, combining mayonnaise, crumbly cheese, chili powder, cilantro, lime and salt in as many different variations as there are chefs. And while it’s hard to believe you can get tired of feasting on delicious corn on the cob, this recipe blends all the tasty street corn ingredients into a warm dip, perfect for entertaining or cool evenings.
Mexican Street Corn Salad
This is such a great summer dish, and a definite crowd pleaser. Spooning it into individual serving cups makes a beautiful presentation for a party. It’s also delicious added to tacos or served with nachos. Cotija is a Mexican cheese, available here at Lepp Farm Market and is similar to feta, less salty with just a bit more tang.
Sweet Dill Corn Salad with Buttermilk Dressing
Did you know you can eat corn raw? Yup, that’s right. It’s crunchy and sweet and it’s how Farmer Rob tests the corn to see if it’s ready for picking, by chomping on a fresh cob right in the field. But raw corn is also perfect for this incredibly fresh tasting summer salad.

Summer Corn Chowder
Adapted from Food 52, this delicious chowder is summer in a bowl. The poblano and jalapeno peppers give it a wonderful kick which is tamed by the addition of the cream. Use a good-quality heavy-bottomed pot so that the veggies don’t stick as they’re cooking in their own juices. If you have a Le Creuset, now’s the time to use it!
