One of the best things about summer for me is getting together with family & friends for a BBQ and enjoying good food with great company! It helps to have a quick and easy dish you can whip up and bring along. This sweet corn salad is delicious and the perfect dish to have at your next BBQ get-together and it only takes 10 minutes to make. Makes 11 ½ cup servings, 1 point per serving on WW.
Corn: Use sweet corn, you can use it right off the cob, canned corn *be sure to drain thoroughly or frozen corn *must be thawed
Bacon: If you live in the U.S then you can use the center-cut bacon as it is much lower in points. For my fellow Canadians, I suggest buying the real bacon crumbles. Great value from Walmart has one and 5 tablespoon is equal to 4SP, the same as 6 slices of cooked center cut bacon.
As an alternative, you could use diced ham. If you want to make this recipe vegetarian you can leave the bacon out.
Ranch dressing: I used my own recipe for this which you can find here. You can use store-bought but it will be higher in points so I suggest building the recipe in the WW app.
Veggies: Feel free to add in some extra vegetables, diced cucumber or zucchini, chopped mushrooms, diced peppers.
You can make this recipe the night before and store it in the fridge but do not add the ranch & feta until you are ready to serve. Store any leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
