When you think of the 4th of July, what comes to mind? For me, it’s 6 simple words… Freedom, Food, Family, Friends, Fun, & Fireworks! (I’m not sure why they all begin with “F”)
I’m blessed to have wonderful friends & family to enjoy this great day with every year! Doesn’t that patriotic spread just make you hungry & grateful for all this country has to offer?! I love pot-luck type events… primarily because I love to cook & eat but also it’s a great way to try out new recipes. After sampling a delicious corn casserole this year, I had to find out who made it & get the recipe. Should have known it was one of Paula Deen’s recipes… love her country style cooking! Anyways, here is a crowd-pleaser for any cook-out occasion… and, bonus, it’s super easy & quick to make!
Paula Deen’s Corn Salad
- 2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, drained
- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup green pepper, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup red onion, chopped
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) bag coarsely crushed Fritos chili cheese corn chips
Mix first 5 ingredients and chill. Stir in corn chips just before serving.
Yep that’s it… almost too easy… the only downside to this recipe is that it is going to go so fast that you might want to bring two! If you’d like to see a picture of the prepared casserole or would like to print the recipe, click here! Try it out at your next event & let me know what you think!
