This is not the most unique of salads, but it is tasty and easy to whip together. You can use frozen corn kernels if fresh corn isn't available. Most of the items are typically in my pantry and fridge, so this is nice if I need a last minute addition to a meal or a quick snack. Great for summer too! —There'sAlwaysPie
