How to Make Corn Salad
This dish couldn’t be simpler to make! Drain the corn and add to medium mixing bowl. Stir in seasonings, lime juice, sour cream, and mayo. Chop peppers, onion, and cilantro. Add chopped veggies and salsa to the bowl and give a quick stir.
What Kind of Corn Should I Use?
This recipe uses canned corn, which provides year round convenience. You can substitute fresh or frozen corn in this creamy corn salad recipe for an even bigger punch of flavor.
Can I Make This Corn Salad Ahead?
I don’t recommend assembling the salad more than a few hours in advance. The dressing mixture will absorb the water from the corn over time, resulting in thin consistency. You can speed up preparation by chopping all veggies ahead of time and mixing just before you are ready to servce.
How Long Will This Salad Keep?
This salad will stay fresh for a few hours in the refrigerator. If it becomes thin, you can add more sour cream to thicken it.
What Can I Do With Leftovers?
This makes great chicken nachos! Add leftover salad and a few chicken breasts to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Remove chicken and shred. Spread over tortilla chips, top with shredded cheese, and bake at 350 until the cheese is melted.
