A great way to use that fresh corn from the garden! This recipe also works with frozen corn; cook it briefly, then chill.

I loved this! I also ended up using frozen corn as the sweet corn hasn't come in yet. I used about 4 and a half cups. That may be a bit too much for some people, but I love corn so it worked for me! The dressing is very nice. I love the flavour of the vinegar mixed with the mustard. It smells neat too! Thanks for this little gem!

Very good, easy-to-make and different salad! I used frozen corn and yellow and green bell peppers so this went together in under 10 minutes. Thanks for sharing this delicious salad which uses things I usually always have on hand!
