Making Taco Bar Corn Salad

As with most any new recipe, I like to make it as written the first time then adjust to my liking.

Just a few easy steps always using fresh items.

Fresh limes.

Freshly chopped Cilantro – only leaves.  I love adding extra – we are all cilantro lovers.

Fresh grape or cherry tomatoes, maybe consider multi-color for added color.


Pin it for Later.  Do you follow me on PINTEREST?  

Maybe a little more Cilantro, or of course Bacon would never be bad.

This is a great side item for my Ultimate Skillet Nachos – or even  as a topping.

Maybe you want to add a Creamy Margarita with it too.

Although this is a great Cinco de Mayo recipe, having your Taco Bar Corn Salad, Skillet Nachos, and Creamy Margarita – you are ready for any summertime party.

Do you need a couple more nacho ideas?
