Crack Corn Salad is one of the tastiest and easiest side dishes to make. It pairs perfectly at any bbq (burgers, steaks, hot dogs) but also doubles as a tasty appetizer and dip.

If making as a dip, pair it with some Frito corn chips.

The reason this is called “crack corn” is because it is so addicting because of how good it is.
