This Mexican Corn and Bean Salad is wonderful for potlucks, with chips and makes a fabulous side for sandwiches and grilled entreés too!
If using fresh corn, place 3 unhusked ears in the microwave and cook on high power for 5 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then cut 1 inch off the bottom of each ear. Starting at the top, peel off husks and silk. Check for any residual silk and remove. Cut kernels off of cobs and place in a large bowl. Repeat with the remaining 3 ears of corn. Discard husks. If using canned corn, drain well and transfer to a large serving bowl.
Pour half of the dressing over vegetable mixture in the bowl; stir well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Taste and add extra dressing and seasoning (salt and pepper) as desired, to taste.
