This salad recipe is incredibly easy and a real family hit! It's a great dish to take along to a potluck, have as party food, plus you can make it ahead and keep refrigerated.
You can be a little flexible with the ingredients, obviously, the corn and cucumber need to go in as they are the main ingredients for this delicious salad, but feel free to swap the peppers for a variety of different colors, or add some chopped celery or tomato too!
As for the dressing, it's simple to make and is a mix of Italian herbs and a hint of sweetness.
For best results, this salad tastes amazing when left to soak in the dressing so you get maximum flavor. So making it ahead the night before is a great idea.
