Sun Dried Tomato Summer Corn Salad

WOW!!! Your guests will want to come over to your house every day for the rest of their lives after you feed them this. Big, BIG secret: To cut the corn off the cob, lay it down flat on your cutting board. This way the kernels won't bounce all over the place and make a mess. Also, don't cut too close to the cob, which is hard to chew and has a terrible texture. Just get the corn off the cob and don't spend a dollar to save a nickel. Got it. Oh...you can also NOT cook the corn. In fact, I think it's crunchier, juicer, better AND easier to just cut it off the cob raw. Use cotija instead of feta if you prefer, but both are great. This dish is great. You're great and you're gonna be the hit of the party with this summer-aganza.
