  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup vinegar

Joan Aller, the author of this delightful cookbook, says this about her corn relish salad recipe:

“This is a wonderful picnic salad. The first time I ate corn relish salad was at a company picnic. My boss proudly made it, and I couldn’t stop eating it! I can’t tell you who won the three-legged race, but I’ll never forget this salad.”
