This salad is great at cookouts and is quick to fix! If salad is too dry or gets too dry add a little milk.

I love it when people change a whole recipe, including ingredients, and then give it three lousy stars. Sheesh, if you're going to do that, send in your own recipe! Read More

As written I have to give this recipe 3 stars. I liked the basic idea, but I had to change the ingredients. First of all, I used fresh corn, cooked and cut off the cob. I used frozen peas instead of canned because....Yuck! Canned peas are icky. I used grape tomatoes, cut in half instead of large tomatoes to cut down on the liquid, and seeded the cucumber for the same reason. I also made a vinaigrette instead of mayonnaise. My husband said he didn't think he would like a corn salad, but he really liked this one. Although I made several changes, I thank you for the recipe! Read More

This is a fast salad that is great as a side dish. I have served it twice now, followed the recipe exactly and both times it was a hit. Everyone went home asking for the recipe. Read More

A good way to get your veggies. I used frozen corn and peas instead of canned. I substituted scallions for onion and orange bell pepper for pimentos. Read More

I had a corn salad from a small town grocery store deli several years ago that was so delicious but have never found it anywhere else or was able to recreate it. When I found this recipe I thought I'd give it a try and let me tell you this is it! The only change I made was leaving out the peas as the salad I had didn't have them and I don't care for them. Delicious! You have to try this it is perfect for summer and so easy to make. Read More

This was delicious and a perfect substitute for a lettuce salad. I used Green Giant Steam Crisp Super Sweet White Corn (11 oz.) Green Giant Steam Crisp Super Sweet Yellow and White (11 oz.) Le Sueur Very Young Small Sweet Peas a small jar of pimientos the 2 tomatoes and cucumber and green onion to our taste preference. I used only 1/4 cup light mayonnaise which was perfect for this amount of vegetables. It makes a lot! Read More

This is excellent! I scaled it X3 for 40 servings (but just used one can of peas). Got lots of compliments on it. I wil definately make it again. Read More

This is such a fun change from lettuce salads. I served it to guests who at first didn't know what to make of it...peas and corn? For this reason I'd suggest making the servings small like in a lettuce cup. Not exactly rave reviews but everyone liked it fine and it's pretty filling. I make it for myself on occasion but I only use frozen corn and peas then microwave them to just thaw out never cook them. They are a lot sweeter that way. I also used fresh red bell pepper and no cucumbers (my husband is allergic). This is an easy recipe to change to suit your tastes. The point is to keep it simple. Thanks Kim for this great idea!
