Fresh Corn Salad or Salsa

This originally was an Epicurious recipe for "Tricolor Salsa" to serve with grilled chicken. It's good that way, and as a topping or dip for various things-- tacos, chips, a pan of nachos. But I often make it as a side dish in and of itself. We love it as a salad with a BLT. With fresh corn, it's great with any summer meal.
