Summertime is all about family gatherings, neighborhood barbecues, and picnics in the sun. Plain and simple, this is the time to gather together and enjoy delicious food, and one of those dishes is almost always a cold salad.

Think about it, how many summer get-togethers have you been a part of where there was always a large bowl of amazing potato, egg, or corn salad? It seems to be the unofficial side dish of summertime dining! We just love it, especially in the hot summer months.

It’s this love for cold, creamy salads that led to our post today. We took all the delicious tastes of our Freeze Dried Sweet Corn, Dehydrated Celery, Dehydrated Onion, Freeze Dried Bell Peppers, and Freeze Dried Cheddar Cheese, and combined them with the flavor and texture of Chili Cheese Corn Chips to create an amazing, over-the-top corn salad that is sure to be a hit at your next summer gathering. Plus, it’s so simple to make! Grab a mixing spoon, it’s time to whip up some Chili Corn Salad!

2 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Sweet Corn
1/2 cup Honeyville Dehydrated Celery
1/2 cup Honeyville Dehydrated Onions
1/2 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Bell Peppers
1 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Cheese
1 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups Water
10 oz Chili Cheese Corn Chips

First, combine all your Honeyville ingredients.


In a large mixing bowl, add corn, celery, onion, bell peppers, and cheese.


Next, add mayonnaise and water and mix together until fully incorporate, ingredients are soft, and salad is thick. Place in refrigerator and allow to set up for at least 30 minutes (you can actually leave it in the refrigerator until it is time to serve, then add chips right before serving).


Remove from refrigerator, add chips, stir until completely combined, then serve.


This cold salad is full of summertime flavor, texture, and taste. The freeze dried and dehydrated foods hydrate up perfectly and, when combined with the chili cheese corn chips, have just the right amount of taste and smoothness to make any summer meal that much better! Serve this up as the perfect side dish for any event or party you’re attending. Trust us, everyone will be asking you for the recipe.


Summer is all about meals, and nothing makes a meal perfect like a side of this amazing Chili Corn Salad.
