Crunchy Frito Corn Salad

by 247tasty

I love this! The zesty, crunchy corn salad top with Fritos chips is a summer side dish that is great to serve all year round!

We love corn, I like to stock especially when it is in season. When I am not using them yet, I cut off the cobs and freeze. A foolproof way to throw fresh veggies into a cozy meal at any time of the day. I like it most when grilled or cooked in a milk and butter texture like how we used to. Not until I read about this Crunchy Frito Corn Salad recipe that everyone is crazy about. I tell you this recipe is the greatest! I am obsessed and the kids had so much fun devouring this delicious corn salad. It instantly became my family’s favorite, a matter of fact, the most requested. This is a must-try, you guys. It’s refreshing, it’s simple, easy to make, and a quick fix if you want something light for dinner. You can even use canned corn kernels if fresh cobs are not available and it still is gonna be great! No need for anything fancy, just a few simple ingredients to make this crunchy Frito Corn Salad.
