This Confetti Corn Salad is a refreshing, light side dish that’s perfect for summer dinners, potlucks, parties, and more!
During the summer I love making new and different salads to serve as a main dish or side dish. The other night I made a Mexican meal and I wanted a side dish that was healthy, cool, and refreshing. I threw together some of my favorite fresh in-season produce, looked down at the bowl and saw that all of the different colors together looked like a delicious bowl of confetti!
Cook’s Note – Mexican Corn Salad:
- You can make this corn salad up to 24 hours in advance. I just suggest you slice and add the avocado right before serving.
- You can also use this corn salad as a dip. I’ve tried it and it’s delicious!
- You can use fresh corn in this recipe. Just cut the corn from the cob and boil for about 3-4 minutes.
