This amazingly easy Corn Salad is the perfect side for your summer BBQ and since it's made with canned corn, you can enjoy it year round!

Though the fury seems to be cooling now, I’m sure if you’ve been on any form of social media in the last few weeks you’ve seen the story of “Chewbacca Mom” and her ride on the fame train.  She’s been on national television, her entire family was awarded college scholarships, and even got a vacation to Disney World as a result of her video.   Seeing all this, one thing that’s stuck with me is that in each story or video, people were constant talking about her cheerful disposition and love for life.  Watching a video from her trip to Disney World she ended by saying this… “When you have a heart filled with joy, it will change everything.”  “Wow,” I thought.  How true!  A joy-filled heart really does change everything.  Imagine if we took a more joyful look at things in our own lives.  Suddenly, the things we despise most don’t seem so bad.  Unloading the dishwasher means I was able to feed my family.  Ironing clothes means we have nice things to wear.  Dusting means we have a home filled with things that make it cozy.  There is always something in your life that you can be joyous about.  Despite your aches and pains, did you wake up today?  Be joyous!  Despite the scratches and dents, did you have a vehicle to get you to work?  Be joyous!  What in your life can you take another look at with a joy-filled heart?

I know one of the things that brings me joy is spending time with my family and friends.  And in the summer there’s no better way to do than with a delicious barbecue – poolside, lakeside, or just in your backyard.  There’s just something about everyone gathering to relax and share… and eat!  One of the things my mom always shows up with is her Corn Salad.  It’s a light and refreshing side that is perfect for any summer meal, just like the delicious and refreshing flavor of Mike’s Hard Lemonade. Mike’s is incredibly light and with so many flavors I know there will always be something for everyone to enjoy, making it the ideal refreshment for a summer of grilling and barbecues.

Now, let’s make some Corn Salad!

  1. This salad looks so yummy! I can’t wait to try it out 🙂

  2. The salad is very good! I didn’t have the can of green chilis so I used some salsa verde instead, which worked out pretty well. I also added a minced red pepper because I had it on hand. Might try an orange pepper next time for color variety.

  3. Try this one with grilled roasting ears. Oh my!

  4. If using fresh corn should it be cooked first? This looks and sounds delicious!

    Family loved this salad first time I made it. Second time around I added a bit of cumin and fresh from garden cilantro and got the Wow oh my goodness remarks. Had no leftovers for my lunch the next day.

    Are you not doing the Cooking School at All South anymore?

    Thanks for the recipe! There don’t seem to be many online of this type. We sometimes eat at a Mennonite buffet, and once they had corn salad, and I couldn’t find a recipe anything like it. They don’t put tomatoes or green chilies in theirs, but I think it had diced green bell peppers in it. Otherwise it looks about the same. Thanks!
