The corn gives this savory salad a wonderful sweetness and crunch. I like to grill the corn first for extra flavor but you could cook the corn any way you like. The sweetness of the corn pairs so nicely with the heat of the jalapenos. And of course, bacon makes everything taste better.

Tips for making Jalapeno Popper Grilled Corn Salad:

  • This recipe is very adaptable. Use pepper jack or swiss cheese instead of the cheddar cheese or leave the cheese out altogehter.
  • To make a lower fat version, use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and reduced-fat cream cheese and light mayo.
  • Instead of grilling the corn, boil or steam it or use canned corn or frozen corn that has been cooked.
  • Use more or less jalapeno to alter the heat.
