Crunchy Corn Salad

I totally ADORE corn salad, and I’ve got lots of corn salad recipes, all just a bit different and all simply delicious. But then came THIS corn salad, leaving me wondering why in the world I never thought to throw in a handful of spicy corn chips??? Good grief. And don’t think I’m exaggerating here….it’s downright yummy.

Crunchy Corn Salad


  • 2 cans shoe peg corn well drained (or 2 cups of corn cut right off the cob!)
  • 3-4 ribs celery diced
  • 1 sweet bell pepper seeds and membranes removed, diced (I like a red or orange one best)
  • 6 green onions chopped, green and white parts both
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups Chili Cheese Fritos broken a bit
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1/3 cup Hellman's mayo
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine dressing ingredients; add vegetables and cheese. Toss to coat all ingredients. Just before serving, add Fritos to salad.
