Ingredients for the Grilled Crack Corn Salad

Corn – To make things easier we use canned or frozen roasted style corn. You can also pan roast corn kernels in a little butter or oil in a cast iron skillet if you can’t find any already prepared roasted corn. Ideally though, roasting fresh ears of corn at home on your BBQ with the corn husks on is gonna give the best smoky flavor.

Bacon – You want perfectly crisp bacon here.

Onions – Use a large red onion.

Tomato – Any type of tomato works really. You could also use cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes.

Ranch Salad Dressing – Use your favourite ranch dressing.

Cheddar Cheese – Shredded cheddar cheese is best here.

Garlic Powder – Adds a little extra punch to the dressing.

Salt & Pepper – Brings it all together.

Then garnish with fresh herbs. I used parsley but cilantro would work well too.
