Simple Corn Salad Recipe


Totally simple to toss together and a great make-ahead recipe when you know you have a busy week ahead of you.  This corn salad is zesty with a tinge of sweet.  It gets better and better the longer it's stored in the refrigerator.


  • 2 cups frozen sweet corn, simmered in water for 5 minutes, drained
  • 3/4 cup celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup pimiento or red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons yellow onion, minced

Toss the vegetables in a medium bowl with a lid, using either of the following dressing recipes.  Chill.  Makes 6 servings.

With these vegetables as your foundation, you could use a Simple French Dressing Recipe to moisten the salad.  Or try the following:

zesty & sweet dressing

  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons salad oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • pinch of salt & pepper

In small saucepan over medium heat, bring dressing ingredients to a boil.  Pour dressing over vegetables and toss to coat evenly.  Marinade in the fridge 4 hours or overnight.

This recipe can easily be doubled.
