Top this salad with finely shredded cotija cheese. Can't find it? Parmesan makes a great substitute.
Remove husks and silk from corn. Cut kernels from cobs. In a large skillet cook corn kernels in the 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until corn is tender and golden brown, stirring often. Reduce heat as necessary to prevent corn from popping out of the skillet. Prepare salad as directed.
