Perfect Corn salad for parties

Being crafty, I love to come up with recipes that are quick to whip up or inspire me to be creative with food. This way I have more time to be creative with the party decor and theme ideas. Last week we had a great time celebrating our kids birthday party. The boys were interested in a video game themed party. For the appetizers we had custard and nachos.

Where did this idea come from?

We love coconut milk corns on a cob. The creamy soup with sweet corn is perfect for the cold weather. However, I wanted something to serve with nachos. So, I decided to tweak the recipe my mom gave me a bit to come up with this kids-approved and friends-approved corn salad. It can be served with nachos and it tastes delicious. Try it for yourself!

Fresh lemons gives this recipe an extra flavor

Freshly squeezed lemon juice is a great combination with coconut milk and sweet corns. It brings in an extra Thai taste that makes it the secret ingredient.

What makes it better than salsa?

We are accustomed to salsa with nachos. However, this recipe breaks the habit and brings something new to the table effortlessly.

Can I substitute corns with canned corns?

Yes! I used canned corns in this recipe. Due to seasonal stocking corns may not be readily available in your local grocery store. Same was the case with me. So, I bought canned corns and washed them thoroughly with water to remove excess can liquid.

What ingredients are needed to make corns?

All you need to make this salad is coconut milk, sweet corns, coriander, spring onion, lemon and seasoning. Coconut milk instead of cream makes this recipe taste light and feel good.
