I modified this recipe a little as it calls for 3 ears of fresh corn but I used can corn instead. It is quite versatile in that it can be used as a dip with Frito Scoops or chips or as a salad by itself.

    I did not use fresh corn as it isn't in season so I used two cans of regular corn, drained. ENJOY!
