Cita’s Corn Salad is the perfect mix of sweet, and salty. This beautiful crunchy salad pairs well with my tender chicken recipe (or any protein really), and a side of mashed cauliflower, or mashed potatoes which take it to the next level. The best part about Cita’s Corn Salad is that it takes seconds to throw together, and as long as you have a can of corn in your pantry you can get it done one way or the other. Be sure to check out my substitution tips below.
Background story: So, my husband started calling me “Mama Cita” quite a few years ago as a flirtatious gesture. It eventually turned into just “Cita”, and now that’s really all he calls me (except when he is angry, lol). He even calls our kitchen, “Cita’s Kitchen” 😂. I have to admit that I really do like it. It makes me feel loved and there certainly isn’t anything wrong with that. I hope you try it tonight!

Heading out in the camper this weekend and this will be a last minute addition to our meal plan! Sounds a lot like what was my Italian dad’s favorite way to make cucumbers and tomatoes! I like the idea of adding corn.
