Our church eats together every Wednesday evening. Actually we eat together every Sunday too, but that's more of a potluck kind of thing. Wednesday nights meals usually have a theme. One of my favorite themes, believe it or not, is salads. It's a versatile and broad theme and there are usually some delightful dishes offered.

This past Wednesday the rotation had rolled around to salads again and I decided to try something new. I turned to pinterest of course, because out of sixty boards and over three thousand pins I knew I'd find something. I actually have a board just for salads...there's only 22 pins on it but I still have the board :-) I'd love to add some more so let me know if you have any favorite salad recipes.

First up is a cold corn salad. I can't wait for summer because this is the perfect side for grilling season. It's a Paula Deen recipe but surprisingly enough it has no butter...just a cup of mayonnaise. Don't worry, I didn't take a picture of a cup of mayo because honestly, who wants to see that? I didn't take a picture of the corn chips either for some reason but they add a nice satisfying crunch to the salad. It really is a colorful and pretty salad too.

Here's what you'll need:
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 cup of mayonnaise
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 bag of Frito chili cheese corn chips


What you'll do:
Mix the first five ingredients together. Stir in crushed fritos just before serving and enjoy!

Pretty simple, huh? Got to love recipes like that. I also made the oh so yummy snickers salad. Crisp green apples and chopped up snickers all swirled together by a froth of cool whip and vanilla pudding. Delicious!



What you'll need:
1 tub of cool whip
1 package instant vanilla pudding mixed with 1 cup of milk only
4 to 6 large granny smith apples, chopped
6 regular size snicker candy bars, chopped

What you'll do:
Fold the cool whip into the prepared pudding mix. 
Gently stir in the apples and snicker bars. 
Eat up!
