Bachelorette Corn Salad

I made a double batch of this salad the other week, and it was gone in one evening. Even better than having no leftovers is the fact that it takes maybe 3 minutes to make!

1 lb can/package corn kernels (if package, defrosted)
1 c red pepper strips
1/2 c sliced green olives
1/2 tbsp parsley
coriander to taste
pepper to taste
1 tbsp dried minced garlic
1/4- 1/2 c light mayonnaise

Assemble, add spices to taste, and stir in mayonnaise. Chill overnight.

  • If you do not have coriander available, you can substitute a sprinkle of oregano. I suggest you avoid substituting cumin, since its flavour will overpower the taste of the salad.
  • If the mixture is too thick, add 1 tsp of lemon juice, stir and repeat until the mixture is the correct consistency. Adjust the spices accordingly. If the lemon juice has caused the mixture to become too acidic, add a tsp of sugar at a time until you hit the right "balance".
