Creamy Corn Salad Ingredients:

  • Frozen Corn Kernels – you can use frozen corn kernels any time of the year, but if corn is in season, try using fresh corn cut straight from the cob.
  • Red Bell Pepper – you can use any color, but red is my favorite because it’s a little more sweet.
  • Purple Onion – adds great flavor, but you can substitute green onion for a more mild flavor.
  • Jalapeno – gives the salad just a little bit of heat, feel free to leave out if desired.
  • Plain Greek Yogurt – you can with substitute sour cream if you prefer.
  • Mayo – gives the salad that great creamy texture.
  • Cilantro – one of my favorite fresh herbs! You can leave it out if you’re not a fan.

Combine all the ingredients for this summer side dish recipe in one bowl and toss together.

Can I Make Corn Salad Ahead Of Time?

Yes! You can make this super easy corn salad ahead of time, but it’s best when served within a day.

If you’re needing to make it more in advance than that, just don’t mix the dressing ingredients into the corn mixture until you’re about to serve it.

What To Serve With Corn Salad?

This super easy side dish tastes great with anything grilled. The fresh flavors of corn, peppers and jalapeño really bring out the smoky flavors of bbq. Here are some of my favorite main dishes that would pair perfectly with this salad.

Serve this creamy corn salad at all your summer pot lucks and bbq's and watch it disappear so fast!

Salad can be made up to a day ahead of time, but sauce does thin out the longer it stands. Best if enjoyed within 2 days.

    I made this today for a family dinner and everyone loved it! As I’m not a big fan of cilantro, I added some dill instead, along with celery seed. This recipe is a keeper!

    I made this last night. I used the frozen corn thawed in the sink. It was delicious. I exchanged the yogurt to light sour cream. It was delicious with our grilled herb chicken legs. A great Summer meal.

    I’m wondering if a little chili powder and cotija cheese would be good In this. I usually make a warm side of corn butter chili powder and cojita cheese to go with quesadillas. I will have to try it first before adding any new flavors. Just a thought. Can’t wait to make it. Looks really good.

    I have made this at least three times within the past two months for parties and such. Absolutely love it!! It’s always a hit! Thank you

  5. Donna

    I’ve made this delicious salad many times. I add crushed Chili Cheese Fritos right before serving. Absolutely amazing!!!!

  6. Sherrie Steiger

    If I use fresh corn, should I cook it first or eat it uncooked? This looks delicious as all of your recipes.

        I’m like Donna, we crush chili cheese fritos on our corn salad and its crunchy and delicious. Try it sometime. Don’t think u will be disappointed.
