This easy Corn Salad recipe has bacon and avocado and a spicy chipotle dressing! It's the perfect side salad.
There are so many ways to make a corn salad, but this is my favorite!
Even though summer is ending soon, I still love making corn salad. In fact, I make this salad all year long! Corn salad is easy and versatile and perfect when you're tired of the basic salad you normally make.
This easy bacon avocado corn salad is also great as a taco filler; top chicken or fish tacos with it and you have the perfect relish!
This corn salad is Mexican inspired but it's all American with bacon and avocado and a bit of heat from the jalapeño and chipotle dressing. It's as close to a fresh corn salad as you can get; I used frozen corn!
Frozen or fresh corn is the best in a corn salad, but you can use a canned corn if that's all you have. I know where we live you can find frozen corn all year long and I love it just as much as fresh. In fact, for making salads, I like frozen corn best because whenever I try and cut kernels off a cob I end up losing half of the kernel. Using frozen corn ensures you'll have a fresh and full salad!
This Corn Salad recipe is perfect as a side dish, for a potluck, or as relish on tacos. It's sweet and spicy and it's the perfect summer salad recipe (all year long).
