Raw Mexican Street Corn Salad ♥ with Cauliflower Rice

An uncooked version of grilled Mexican street corn, served cold as a refreshing summer salad. It starts with equal parts raw corn and raw cauliflower rice, reducing the carbs while remaining entirely a "corn" salad. (Once again the chameleon that is cauliflower disappears into the background!) It's all held together with a light creamy dressing spiked with lime juice, warm spices and touches of cilantro and cotija.
