Raw Corn & Radish Salad

I have a whole new respect for corn. I always serve corn during the summer, usually on the cob and grilled with butter and garlic salt. After making this salad, I'm not sure I will ever grill my corn again. The base of this summer side dish is raw corn. You literally cut the kernels right off the cob and then dress them up a bit and you end up with this wonderfully fresh and vibrant flavor combination that pairs perfectly with bleu cheese burgers, cajun ribeyes, or whatever else you might be grilling.
