Angie's Corn Salad

I got this recipe from the wife of a farmer at the farmer's market. And because I live in a small town, I happened to go to high school with her daughter. She gave this to me last summer while I was buying a ton of corn and tomatoes, but I didn't try it until this summer. It was a few weeks ago, Brian and I were preparing to move but I still bought a dozen ears of corn the week before because we also had an after-funeral gathering to attend. I made this because I knew it would keep in the fridge for a few hours, and I had corn. But I am telling you, make this now before the summer corn goes away. You will not regret it.

I brought a big bowl of this with us to the gathering and I was secretly hoping no one would eat it and I could take it all home. Unfortunately, everyone loved it and there wasn't any for me to take home. I've been traveling for the last two weeks, but this morning I made sure to get a dozen ears or corn, peppers and onions and I'm making it tomorrow night. Hopefully this batch will last longer.
