Mexican Corn Salad

Is it a side dish? Or is it a relish? This Mexican Corn Salad can be either—depending on your menu.

Put a dollop of the salad on top of grilled salmon or tilapia for a south-of-the-border garnish. Or add black beans from a can (drained and rinsed) to serve as a main dish. If you use fresh sweet corn, the flavors will pop. Use frozen corn and the dish will be ready in a jiffy.
