Nanie’s Peppercorn Ranch Salad

Although I made a few changes, this recipe for peppercorn ranch salad my Mom makes for barbecues . It’s a simple salad with very little effort. I put this one together for my son’s 15th birthday. It was interesting because I found most teenage boys do not like canned corn. So strange! Yet they all admitted they like grilled corn on the cob but it has to be only grilled corn on the cob not boiled. Odd! Lesson learned not to make anything with corn in it for teen males.
