Vegetable Salad Recipes


This colorful salad can use canned, frozen, or leftover corn-on-the-cob. Use whatever veggies you have, don't worry if you don't have everything on hand.

2 Cups corn (thawed/cooked)

1/3 Cup diced green pepper

1/3 Cup diced red pepper

1/3 Cup diced celery

1/3 Cup diced red onion

1/2 Cup cilantro, chopped (I measure the cilantro before chopping)

1/2 tsp. cumin

1/2 Cup Ranch Type Salad Dressing (Homemade is best!)

Mix together, and chill. Perfect for picnics and potlucks
