Aunt Jo's Summer Salad

Happy Independance Day!!!!
We hope your day is filled with the best memories and delicious food! 
We would like to thank the many
servicemen  and women who have fought for the freedoms that we all enjoy. Because of the sacrifices they have made for us we get to live in this free land and enjoy all that we do!
Have a wonderful, spectacular, fabulous kind of day!!

Since today is one of the biggest barbecue days of the year, I thought it was only 
appropriate to post something you can actually eat with your meal today. 
This salad is OH SO GOOD! It was given to me by one of my aunts, from another one of my
aunts.....and coming from such reliable sources I got busy and made it right away. I love the 
crunch of the peppers and corn together. This would be a huge hit at any family barbecue or served
as lunch on a hot day!

Aunt Jo's Summer Salad
3 large red peppers, diced into small pieces
1 bunch of green onions, cut into small pieces
1 bag frozen corn, thawed but not cooked
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Mayonnaise (NOT salad dressing), enough to make your salad creamy

1 bag Chili flavored Frito Chips

Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl (except chips) until combined. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours so that the flavors can marry. When ready to serve, add chips...OR let guests add chips to their own salad. THIS WAY if there are any leftover salad,  the chips aren't directly in in it so they won't go gross and soggy. Serve and enjoy!!
* You could also use pepper jack cheese in place of the cheddar cheese....I think I will try that next time.
