Warm Corn and Bacon Salad

Although this is best served warm, it is also nice served chilled so you can make this salad ahead if you like, and refrigerate it until you are ready to serve it. This corn and bacon salad does not require too many ingredients because most of the flavor comes from the corn and bacon. Two types of onion, some lemon juice, and dill are also included for flavor.

It is best to use fresh corn in this recipe and although you boil it first, it is wonderful if you grill it for a few minutes afterwards. Then it will char a bit and this will give it an amazing flavor. Serve this salad for lunch by itself or add some bread. Alternatively serve it as a side dish with your evening meal. It would go nicely with grilled chicken or even a meaty fish like cod or monkfish.

Another idea for this flavorful salad is to spoon it over a baked potato, as an alternative to your usual baked potato fillings. Salad is not what usually comes to mind when people think about comfort food but this delicious bacon salad could be thought of as comfort food because it is warm, rich and delicious, as well as supremely satisfying.

You can see how much corn is in this salad, giving it a naturally sweet flavor. The saltiness of the bacon counteracts the sweetness, making the salad perfectly balanced. This is such an easy recipe to make and even if you do not have a grill you can make it. You could even use canned or frozen corn if you are in a real hurry, and still end up with a delicious salad. The crispy bacon adds a luxurious touch and although it is possible to serve this salad chilled, it is fantastic when served warm, since all the flavors and aromas seem more intense that way.
