If you love Frito corn chips you will really like making this Frito Salad. Did you grow up eating those yummy corn chips, I sure did! My family loves those chips to dip in creamy homemade dips. My sister told me about a salad that her daughter made, so I modified the recipe and this is what I came up with, The best Frito Salad you will ever make.

This salad can be made with ingredients you have in your pantry and refrigerator. You may even grow most of the vegetables in your garden, so that makes this one a keeper. If you love sweet red and yellow bell peppers you will make this salad all the time, I promise. It has a crunch with the vegetables and the Fritos corn chips. All I can say is that it’s yummy and your family will love it.

Ingredients for Frito Salad

Here are the ingredients: canned corn, green onions, red and yellow bell peppers, Cilantro, Roma tomatoes, a lime, and some grated cheese. Then you make the dressing with mayo and some spices.

What’s really great about this salad is that you can make it in the morning by chopping the veggies, draining the corn, and mixing up the dressing. Then put it all together right before you serve it.

  3. I roll out the three pieces of dough into a rectangle shape and roll up into a tube shape and place on a greased cookie sheet or French bread/baguette pan as shown: Chicago Metallic Commercial II Non-Stick Perforated Baguette Pan
  4. Grease some plastic wrap and cover the dough and let rise until double in size. Just before placing the loaves in the oven to bake, use a sharp knife to slice a few shallow cuts on the diagonal on the top of the dough. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Lightly brush the baked loaves with butter on the tops and serve while warm.
