1/2 cup sliced almonds

1 cup mayonnaise

10min · 6 servings

 

2 cups frozen corn (still frozen)

juice from 1 lime

1 teaspoon minced garlic (or 2 cloves)

2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, minced

10 cherry or grape tomatoes

2 strips of pre-cooked bacon (optional)

Mix together corn, lime juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and cilantro.

Halve or quarter the cherry tomatoes, depending on how big they are. Add to corn.

Heat up the bacon. You can cook it crispy or soft - whatever you prefer. Blot off excess grease. Chop into large bits, and add it to the corn.

If you want to serve it right away, let it stand at room temperature until the corn is thawed - it won't take very long. Otherwise, refrigerate it until ready to serve.
