I CREATED this recipe because my family is so fond of corn. I tried to add a little zip to it with the marinade and I think I succeeded.
I double or triple the recipe for potlucks or when we have dinner guests. In either case, someone's always sure to ask for the recipe.

THIS delicious dish was served by my sister-in-law years ago for her daughter's graduation party.
She shared the recipe with me, and I've made it many times, adjusting it to the number of people I'm serving. The secret ingredient is horseradish, which gives the dressing a little zing!

I AM 83 years old and my mother has been gone for many years, but I'm still using her best recipes. She was a gourmet cook before anyone was using that term and before everyone was counting calories.
This was one of our family's favorite desserts when I was growing up, and it's just as good two generations later! —Muriel Fay
THE SECRET to the fine taste of this salad results from adding the warm potatoes to the mayonnaise mixture.
My Grandma Nellie may have created the recipe herself or brought it with her from Ireland. I recall friends and family often preferred a second helping of potato salad instead of dessert! —Mary Elizabeth Martucci

THE PEAR and hint of orange are a nice surprise in this salad. It's a little different than traditional Waldorf salad and always brings rave reviews.
The colorful combination of crunchy, fresh ingredients complements any meal.
