Tips for the creamy corn salad recipe

This sweet summer corn salad recipe can be made with fresh or frozen corn. This easy corn salad is easy to make and irresistibly delicious. it’s the perfect solution to an easy dinner but will also make wonders for your picnics or potlucks. You can prepare it up to a day in advance, keeping it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. Here are a few questions you might ask about this corn salad recipe, and some tips as well. 

Can we use frozen corn in this salad?

We like to use fresh corn to make this corn salad but yes, frozen corn can replace fresh corn in most recipes where fresh corn is called for. But if you plan to make this creamy corn salad recipe ahead of time, keep in mind thawed corn will last shorter and can get mushy if you wait too long.

How to choose fresh corn?

The easiest way to choose an ear of corn is to take a quick look: peel down a bit of the husk and check for bright yellow, plump kernels. But since doing this can get you angry stares at the market, here’s how to choose corn without peeling the husk:

  • Check out the color of the husk. If it’s a bright green and tightly wrapped against the cob, then the corn is fresh.
  • Feel the kernels through the husk. The corn kernels should be plump and plentiful.
  • Look for small brown holes in the husk, especially towards the top. Those are wormholes, and, of course, worms are best left alone doing their business.
  • The tassels (those things sticking up out of the top) should be brown and slightly sticky. If they’re dry or black it means the ear of corn is old and stale.
  • As tempting as it might be, don’t peel back the husk. This shortens the shelf life of the corn, causing it to dry out.

Can we make the corn salad dressing lighter?

Yes, you can change the yogurt/mayo ratio in favor of yogurt. Or omit the mayo completely!

How to store the corn salad?

This easy corn salad can be served immediately after mixing all of your ingredients/dressing together, but we recommend covering it and placing it in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the flavors to combine together. The corn salad can be made up to a day in advance of serving and kept in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. When serving leftovers, give your ingredients a good stir before serving, as the dressing has a tendency to settle to the bottom after a while.

Others additions to the corn salad

You might want to add the following ingredients to the corn salad for extra taste:

  • Chopped black olives
  • Red bell pepper
  • Chopped Jalapeño
  • Mozzarella cubes or bocconcini
