How to make this delicious corn salad: 

  1. Mix together corn, lime juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and cilantro.
  2. Halve or quarter the cherry tomatoes, depending on how big they are. Add to the corn.
  3. Heat up the bacon. You can cook it crispy or soft – whatever you prefer. Blot excess grease with a paper towel. Chop into large bits, and add it to the corn and tomatoes.
  4. If you want to serve it right away, let it stand at room temperature until the corn is thawed – it won't take very long. Otherwise, refrigerate it until ready to serve.

Can I make my corn salad without the bacon? 

You can absolutely leave out the bacon if you'd prefer to make this corn salad as a vegetarian side dish.

I think the bacon adds a nice crunch, flavor, and texture to the dish but it's not essential to the recipe.

If I was making corn salad and didn't have bacon on hand I'd throw it together without the bacon…it will still be tasty!

Does this salad travel well? 

If you are making corn salad for lunches or even just a picnic or party, make sure to give it a stir before you put it into lunchbox containers or a smaller dish for traveling.

It's a great recipe to accompany lunches but after a day or so in the fridge the juices / sauce will settle in the bottom of the dish! So give it a good stir and you'll be all set.

Can I use corn salad to top my tacos? 

Making this corn salad to add to a taco bar is a great idea! Serving this up next to guacamole or homemade salsa would be an excellent idea.

It's more colorful and flavorful than the standard vegetable toppings for tacos!

Does this make a good dip recipe, can I serve it with chips? 

Yes! Another great way to serve this corn salad is with some tortilla chips as a dip.

Since it's mostly vegetables you can still feel great about serving it to your family and friends, even the kids will love this tasty and fresh salad recipe.

If you are making it as a dip recipe I'd recommend you add in some avocado.

It adds a nice creamy texture and the flavor compliments the corn and tomato so well!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen corn (still frozen - the kind that comes in a bag)
  • Juice From 1 lime
  • 1 tsp minced garlic (or 2 cloves)
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, minced (about 4-6 stalks)
  • 10 Cherry tomatoes - I used a variety package
  • 2 strips Of Pre-cooked Bacon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix together corn, lime juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and cilantro.
  2. Halve or quarter the cherry tomatoes, depending on how big they are. Add to corn.
  3. Heat up the bacon. You can cook it crispy or soft - whatever you prefer. Blot off excess grease. Chop into large bits, and add it to the corn.
  4. If you want to serve it right away, let it stand at room temperature until the corn is thawed - it won't take very long. Otherwise, refrigerate it until ready to serve.

Notes

You can make this salad straight from your freezer - no need to defrost the corn ahead of time. I cut corners by using jarred garlic and pre-cooked bacon.

This tastes really good with guacamole, salsa, as a dip, to top tacos, and even on it's own as a healthy vegetable side dish!
