Healthy Mexican Corn Salad Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep: To meal prep a salad, add all the ingredients to individual meal prep containers, or family sized containers. Add the dressing to a separate container and do not add it until you are ready to serve.
Storage: Will hold in the fridge for 4-5 days, does not hold well in the freezer.
Serving: If you added the dressing and the salad gets soggy, add it to a sandwich wrap or large tortilla. It’s a great way to salvage leftover soggy salad.

This healthy corn side dish is just 152 calories per cup, and does not contain all the heavy mayonnaise a traditional Mexican corn salad will have.
If you do prefer the creamy version though, we have a great option supplied to you below… and it adds just 6 calories per serving.
Special Tip: We wanted to make a mayo free corn salad, and this healthy corn salad is so fresh and perfect as is. If you prefer a creamy version, add in the greek yogurt! It's a great mayo swap and actually boosts metabolism too!
