Easy Recipes: Frito Corn Salad

Sharing is caring!

Have you ever had corn salad? Sounds a little different, right? Well, you’re going to love this recipe and it is amazing to eat year round.

I have shared many of my friend Kim’s family recipes here on my site. This is one of them. The recipe comes from her mother-in-law and any time of year that you attend a function at their house, this corn salad is generally served. I thought it would be perfect for your upcoming Christmas party planning.

There are two things I love about this salad: 1) the salty Fritos with sweet corn and 2) the crunchiness. (I love all things crunchy!)

(This recipe is sponsored by Kraft. Feel free to read my disclosure here. Before ever doing this post, I already used Kraft’s Creamy Italian Dressing because I shop at Target often and they always have it on the shelf.)

  • 3 cans of sweet corn kernels, drained
  • 1 bag of Fritos
  • 2 cups cheese, shredded (I used Colby)
  • 1 c Creamy Italian Dressing (I used Kraft)
  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced (this one made me cry!)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

Gather your chopped and diced onion, bell pepper and celery.

Grab your drained cans of corn. Add the corn and veggies to a large mixing bowl.

Pour it over the corn salad and mix well.

Pop it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. (We will add the Fritos last so they don;t get soggy.)
