This is such a fresh tasting salad with ribbons of basil leaves throughout. Add dressing in to your liking.

Had a craving for this tonight but couldn't find fresh corn so I used two cans of Del Monte whole kernel corn and it was still delicious. Read More

Cheese adds a little bit of dimension, delicious!!! I also skipped the step where the corn was boiled with sugar and just used salted water. Read More

I made this salad for the first time for a party and had 5 people tell me it was absolutely the best corn salad they've ever had. I was out of mayo that day and substituted Ranch dressing for the mayo. Other that that it was perfect the way the menu read. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Will be a definite keeper.

This is delicious. A little time is needed for prep. I imagine that a number of variations to the ingredients Like chopped cucumber or even some jalapeño would be possible and just as good. Read More

I used frozen corn which I didn t bother to thaw ahead of time. I forgot that it needed time to chill so I only chilled it for about 4 hours. Long enough for the corn to thaw and it still tasted great! Read More
