Crunchy Salad Goodness
I was trying to think of a new, fun “salad” recipe to spice up the typical potato salad, macaroni salad, fruit salad lineup that is to be expected at every upcoming Memorial Day and 4th of July picnic. This Frito Salad Recipe is just the ticket!
Sweet corn, chopped fresh bell peppers, cheese, and Fritos are mixed with sour cream and mayonnaise to create a craveable side for your hamburgers, hot dogs, and anything else you’re grilling up.
Be sure to mix up your salad minus the Fritos, keep the mixture refrigerated, and then toss the Fritos in right before serving. This ensures that the Fritos are nice and crunchy when you eat! No one wants mushy Frito Salad!

I would also suggest reserving some of the corn and chopped bell peppers to sprinkle on top of the salad as garnish.
