I served Bacon Jalapeno Corn Salad as a side for our dinner, but you could easily double the recipe and bring it to a party or picnic.

When you have fresh jalapenos from the garden and fresh corn in the middle of summer, it’s the perfect time to make this super easy and yummy side dish.

How to make Bacon Jalapeno Corn Salad

Start by shucking six ears of corn. Get the kids to join in if possible 🙂

So many family memories have been made in our kitchen, shucking corn with the kids is one of them.

While the corn is boiling in salted water for ten minutes, start frying up some bacon.

I like to use kitchen scissors to cut the bacon right into the skillet over medium heat.

Once the corn is done, remove it and let it cool for a bit.

And once the bacon is done, remove it and drain on paper towels.

I am super pumped about having one of those corn scraper thingys, it makes removing corn kernels so easy and very little mess.

Somewhere in between the corn and bacon cooking, and then cooling, I minced two jalapenos.

Remove the seeds if you don’t want spice, or leave them in if you do 🙂

The dressing for this Bacon Jalapeno Corn Salad is so simple and refreshing.

Just add some olive oil, lime juice, and a little sugar to balance everything out.

Because who doesn’t love a balanced salad, am I right?!

Yes, yes…you can eye roll at that weird comment, I don’t know about me sometimes 😉

Toss it all together and season with kosher salt and pepper to taste.

Add some fresh basil over top and enjoy!
