This height-of-summer salad is best prepared during corn season. It's the perfect dish for a picnic or potluck, and makes a pretty addition to a party table or served as a side dish at an alfresco dinner gathering. Plus, it's ready with a quick zap in the microwave and whir in the blender. A delicious complement to grilled meats, chicken or fish, this corn bowl dressed with smooth tangy goat cheese is really one-part salad, one-part zippy salsa served on the side. Leftovers can be rolled up with sandwich meats or a vegetable spread for a creative lunchbox wrap, or whip up a taco fiesta and top the tacos with this salad, salsa style.
