In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, minced garlic, chili powder, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
Add the corn, diced cucumber, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro and cotija cheese. Stir well to combine, making sure that all the ingredients are coated with the sauce.
Let the salad sit for at least 30 minutes so the flavors can marinate. Garnish with a sprinkle of cotija cheese, fresh cilantro and chili powder when serving.
– Drain the corn completely before adding it to the other ingredients. – Switch up the spice level by omitting the jalapenos or using a spicier pepper like serrano peppers. – Add black beans for extra protein to make this a vegetarian meal.
