Corn Salad

I had this at a potluck and had to hunt down the one who brought this in and get the recipe.  It's fresh and crunchy and you'll find yourself grabbing a second helping.  If you are headed to a party, make this dish.  It's a unique dish so there's a good chance there won't be 2 to 3 other dishes just like it. There is only so much macaroni and potato salads one can eat at a meal. 

It tastes just as good the second day although it loses its corn chip crunch.  Sprinkle on a couple more crushed pieces and you'll be back in corn salad heaven!

Corn Salad                                                                                               Printable Recipe

2 cans yellow kernel corn, drained (or four cups frozen corn, thawed and drained)
1 green bell pepper, diced (approximately 1 cup)
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1 cup mayonnaise
8 ounce block of cheddar cheese, shredded (approximately 2 cups)
Chili cheese flavored Frito-Lay corn chips

Mix together all but the corn chips.

If you are serving right away you can add the corn chips.  If not, wait until just before serving to stir in the chips so they stay nice and crispy.  I didn't use a full bag so use your judgement as to how many you like.


  1. Totally going to show this to my husband who is a huge football fan, as well as corn and tortilla chips, too. Thanks Jenny :)

  2. Corn Salad with the Fritos in it is going to be a hit on game day. Love it and the kids will definitely enjoy it. Great line up of recipes also.

  3. This looks so yummy! I love me some tailgating snacks! Maybe I will make this for this weekend!

  4. Looks awesome Jenny, I can tell you this IS the PERFECT tailgating appetizer!! Thanks for sharing it---I plan on making good use of it.

  5. I wondered what the orange crunchy looking things in the photo were! Love the idea of chips actually mixed in with the dip!

  6. Wow---that is an interesting recipe! I never would have dreamed this one up but it looks yummy and the perfect thing for a party! Thanks for the great idea!

  7. Seriously ! This looks amazing--who wouldn't love something creamy and crunchy at the same time.

  10. This sounds wonderful and great for a potluck!

  11. This was good, although not spectacular. Made it for a dinner party, guests liked it. Added avocado and more tomatoes which helped it a lot. Used corn and tomatoes fresh from garden and farmers market. I would probably make it again.
