Frito Corn Salad

If you are a fan of summer salads you will also want to try this delicious Amish Pasta Salad. It’s our most popular salad for a reason!


This delicious corn salad is super easy to make and will be a winner at your next potluck. Only a few ingredients and takes no time to throw together. We love this salad made with Chili Cheese Fritos. We think it gives it a great flavor and you won’t need any extra seasonings.


  • Whole kernel sweet corn
  • Sweet peppers (red, green or yellow, whichever you prefer)
  • Red onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Shredded cheese (I used colby/monterey jack mix)
  • Mayonnaise
  • Chili Cheese Fritos
  • Cilantro (optional)


If you like different types of corn you can switch it up in this recipe. You can use a can of sweet corn and a can of the summer crisp or white corn. You can also leave out the cilantro, it’s optional.


That is what is so great about these easy summer salads, the hardest part is chopping up the vegetables! This salad can be made in less than 10 minutes which is one of the many reasons why we love it.

Step 1
Mix all ingredients except for Fritos and chill for a few hours. Add Fritos at time of serving and mix well and serve.

Frito Corn Salad


Top the corn salad with the Fritos right before serving and stir into the corn. I believe it’s best this way and others agree. The crunch of the Fritos is a great addition to this salad!


  • Cheddar Ranch Pasta Salad – This pasta salad is always a hit! It’s loaded with all the best ingredients and never any left!
  • Southwestern Pasta Salad – This one is easy to make and with the addition of chicken can almost be a main dish!
  • Southern Tomato Cracker Salad – This is an vintage recipe from many many years ago and it’s a wonderful way to enjoy those fresh garden tomatoes!
  • Macaroni Coleslaw Salad – This is a combination of two salads and it’s sooo good! Everytime I serve this people ask for the recipe.


  • Maple Baked Beans with Sausage – This is one of the best sides with this corn salad, my family always requests these two together.
  • Red Potato Salad – Add this with the baked beans above, the corn salad and some grilled pork chops and you have a fantastic meal!
  • Barbecue Pork Chops – This is a great summer recipe and goes great with every recipe listed on this page!


We store this in the refrigerator and it makes about 8 servings. You can easily double this recipe for a larger gathering.
