This is a recipe I created on the fly for a family barbecue celebrating my son's high school graduation a couple of years ago. This salad is a tasty alternative to the usual BBQ/baked beans, potato salad, etc. If fresh corn is not available, substitute 2 cups of thawed frozen corn kernels. This recipe can be made 2-3 days in advance, too. If desired, you can added several dashes of your favorite pepper sauce, chopped tomato and/or crumbled queso fresca. For large crowds, recipe may be doubled or tripled
