The temperatures are rising and the grills are smoking. It’s about that time for family cookouts and potluck parties. Memorial Day is coming up soon and summer holidays are just around the corner. If you need a quick and easy make ahead salad to take to a get together then this one is for you.
My Aunt Judy started bringing this Frito Corn Salad to all our get togethers years ago. I remember thinking…Fritos in a salad, no way is that gonna be good. Boy was I ever wrong! The bowl is always empty when it’s time to leave.
Frito Corn Salad
- 2 cans corn, drained
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 chopped bell pepper
- 1 cup mayo
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
- 10 oz bag Chili Cheese Fritos
Mix together all ingredients except the Fritos. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Stir in Fritos until well blended when serving.
Seriously, can it get any easier?
My Aunt Judy always put the canned corn in the fridge to get it good and cold. When she would bring this dish to my house she would always bring all the ingredients chopped up and still seperated. She would mix it all up right before it was time to eat and add in the bag of Fritos.
If I’m taking this to someone else’s house, I mix it all up ahead of time except for the Fritos. Then when we get to our destination and it’s time to eat, I dump in the bag of Fritos. Go ahead and give it a try. I know you want to see if corn and chili cheese Fritos are actually good together. I must say thank you to my Aunt Judy for giving me a great recipe years ago that I’ve used time and time again!
