The Kids Cook Monday - Rainbow Corn Salad



Time for The Kids Cook Monday project again. Faith & I made a Rainbow Corn Salad for a get together with friends over the weekend.




The recipe is actually from a friend of my mom's. She told us that she had made it one year for Christmas as a side dish and it became a must-have on their table. Sounded like a great review to me.

It's another great kid-help kind of recipe. There are lots of peppers to chop (I slice the rings first, then Faith could dice it smaller), celery to dice, and a salad dressing to make & shake. Thank God for containers with tight fitting lids. ;o)



Rainbow Corn Salad:

2 cans of plain corn or 1 bag frozen
1/2 cup mixed red, orange & green peppers, diced
2 green onions, diced
1/2 c celery, diced

Combine the above in a glass bowl, mix together

In a lidded container, combine the following for dressing:
1/3 cup vinegar
1/3 oil
1/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. tarragon
1/tsp. basil
(I also added a bit of garlic. You can't go wrong with garlic.)

Shake well, pour over corn salad.

Refrigerate until serving.
