Easy Toasted Corn Salad with Bacon

Today’s recipe, Easy Toasted Corn Salad with Bacon is not only a crowd-pleaser and delicious, but it’s super easy to make!

Toasted Corn And Bacon Salad

Let it be known that I have a thing for salads. Any kind of salad. I love to make salads with all kinds of ingredients and all different types of dressings, but I especially love bacon in my salads. I don’t know what it is, but maybe that little bit of extra crunchy or the savor of salt. I don’t know, but all I know is that this salad I am sharing today is amazingly good and it has bacon it!

Ya’ll know that I love simple and easy and I promise you that this recipe meets both of those likes! So here it goes…I hope you enjoy it!


Feel free to add or take away the jalapeno and/or the lime zest. I also sometimes buy the frozen roasted corn from Traders Joes, which saves me a little more time in the kitchen. Another great addition to this salad is avocado!

Corn Salad ingredients

First, I start cooking my bacon. This allows me to work on the rest of the recipe, while the bacon is cooking. Next, I place the corn in a skillet on medium heat and start to ‘toast’ the corn. Chop your bell pepper and jalapeno.
