Ingredients needed-

This salad is so simple to make and loaded with so much flavor! All you need is:

  • Sweet corn– You can use canned corn, or cut up fresh corn on the cob (or grilled corn), or even frozen corn.
  • Bell pepper– This recipe uses red bell pepper but you can use whatever color you have on hand.
  • Cucumbers– we used mini cucumers but half of an English cucumber will work as well!
  • Cauliflower– You want to make sure to cut the cauliflower into small florets.
  • Dressing– We just used mayo as the dressing. If you like garlic, minced garlic would be great in the dressing.
  • Herbs– This salad calls for fresh herbs. We used dill and green onion but you can use any of your favorite greens, such as parsley, basil or cilantro.


  • PREP– Prepare and cut up the veggies for the corn salad and add to a bowl.
  • DRESSING– We just used mayo for the dressing.
  • COMBINE– In a large bowl, add all the ingredients for the corn salad and toss with the fresh greens and dressing.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Frequently asked questions-

Can I prepare the corn salad in advance?

Yes, this is a salad prepared in advance. It can be made the previous day. Prepare all of the ingredients, keep them covered, and refrigerate.
Before serving, mix and add dressing and season to taste. Keep leftover salad refrigerated.

What can I add to the mayo dressing?

You can add lime juice or apple cider vinegar to the dressing if you want more flavor in the dressing. Some olive oil will give the dressing some creaminess.

What else can I add to the salad?

We love this corn salad as is but here are some great add-ins that will work in the salad: finely chopped red onion, jalapeño (for heat), cherry tomatoes, or even your favorite beans for a Mexican corn salad.

    I made this salad and my boyfriend loved it. I did substitute red onion for t
    as we didn’t have any green onion. I kept it mostly the same except I omitted the peppers because he doesn’t like them but I added cubed pepperjack cheese. It was delicious. I do have a question though. What is a serving size? I track my macros so it was hard to determine what I needed to enter.

      Very EASY to make and a definite hit at parties. I add shrimp and some green peas to the cauliflower. I add old bay and 1/2 lemon to the mayo mixture.

      Have you ever added tomatoes to this? I have a lot of tomatoes to use up and thought I might add it but wondered if it had been done and how it turned out…
