Servings Per Recipe: 8
"I think this salad is A-Maize-Ing. My neighbors and husband loved it. I used fresh corn off the cob because it is in season. You can use the fritos to dip in the salad or out on top. Be sure to put the fritos on right before serving or they will be soggy. You could add a lot of things to this salad like bacon or black beans, but we decided not to mess with a good thing."
"This was so so good! My husband ate it for lunch and dinner three days in a row. Probably not the lightest salad around, but next time I could sub some low-fat mayo to help that. It got better and better the longer it sat in the fridge (I left the crushed fritos separate). Will make again this summer!
Update: Made with low fat sour cream instead this time, just as delicious and lots less calories and fat!"
"Made this for a pitch-in and it went over very well. Good and tasty flavor. The next time I will either add a tad more mayo or not crush the corn chips as much as it turned out a little dry. Or maybe I'll try a different brand of mayo. Either way I will be making this again."
"This was really good - took it for Easter and every bite was eaten. I used one can of corn and one can of Mexi Corn. In place of the Cheddar Cheese, I used the Four Cheese Mexi Blend. I added garlic salt and a 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper, yummy!!!"
"Mmmm... nice and crunchy and different."
"I used fresh corn that I steamed. I omitted the onion. I used a red bell pepper. I brought it to lunch today without the chips. But I'll have to try with them tonight. It's yummy and so creamy. Thanks Anna :) Made for I Recommend tag game"
"This is fantastic!!~ I loved this salad. I served this wiht our burgers and I couldn't keep my fork away from it!!??!! lol This really is a great salad. I loved the addition of the chili cheese fritos, they added so much flavor. Thank you so much for sharing."
"I love this recipe! I omit the green bell pepper and add fresh chopped jalapenos! Delicios! I have also added bacon to it! Kimberly Blackburn"
"absolutely delicious! I left out the corn chips and used the big scoop chips to relish this as a dip. loved it!"
"I thought this could be a good salad to take to parties, so I tried it out on my Hubby, the guinea pig, first! He loved it. I scaled it down, since it was only needing to serve two of us, and I think maybe I cut the mayo too much. ( My GP didn't seem to notice!) I also added some bacon - to complete the UnHoly Trinity: mayo, cheese and bacon! I used canned corn, but I think this would be amazing with grilled and shucked fresh corn! So easy to make - will definitely be coming with me to the next summer party!"
"I wanted to use Paula's recipe as a "memory refresher" since I couldn't find my original salad recipe....in which I use Catalina Dressing instead of mayo. I like the Catalina for a summertime dressing. Paula's is wonderful, all the same!"
"Fixed this last night, I couldn't stop eating it. I added a splash of Red wine vinegar. Will be making this again and again."
"This is a very good salad. And easy, too. I did use fresh corn since it's in season, but it would be fine w/the canned in the recipe I'm sure. I also added some chopped cherry tomatoes. Excellent w/a barbeque dinner. Thanks Paula!"
"My sister made this Corn Salad last weekend & it was GREAT!!! The Chili Cheese Fritos make it so good! I've emailed this on to all my friends & family. This will salad will show up in several family meals now."
"What a great salad. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I'll surely make this one again. It's a great change to the "normal" picnic salads."
"Okay.. so this is gonna sound silly, but the main reason I tried this recipe is because I LOVE chili cheese fritos, hehe. I made it for a family Memorial Day picnic.. it was pretty good, but I doubt I'd make it again only because it's not exactly the healthiest or lightest side dish. Aside from that, it's a nice, simple recipe that can be thrown together near the last minute."
"Love it, thank you for sharing."
"I made this for New Years Day and this was a HIT!!! The bowl was emptied and I will be making this again for our family functions. A new favorite recipe. Thanks for sharing,"
"This is an amazing dish and great with bbq! I substituted a bag of frozen corn for a fresher taste and also added cream cheese and a handful of fried onions at the same time I tossed in the corn chips. Fantastic!"
"This recipe saved my butt at our church picnic today! At about 11:00 last night, I realized that I still hadn't decided what kind of "side dish" to bring, and had run out of time to make anything at all...until I found this recipe. It turns out that there were at least three different macaroni salads and four potato salads on the table, along with a couple of layered salsa dips, but nothing like this...and I think my dish was one of only a few that were completely empty at the end of the picnic. I will definitely make it again, maybe with some hot peppers or pepper jack cheese next time, for a little bit of added kick."
