I like mixing it in a field green salad with touch of garlic, carrots, and cucumbers. It is a great addition to almost any dish, salad, stand alone.

From my understand corn is NOT a vegetable, it's a grain. Either way, I love it and eat it everyday all summer long.

Then why is America becoming increasingly obese/diabetic when most of our food either consist mostly of corn or includes it? Weird eh? Maybe it's because our corn is grown in the same place for years (that attracts pests, it's called mono-culturing) and then gallons of pesticide and herbicide are dumped on the Genetically Engineered corn that big companies like Monsanto own. Which, by the way, has the most corrupt business model in farming. That being suing organic farmers for "not really growing organic crops, but genetically modified crops" but really Monsanto's crop (that is patented) has spread/blown onto the organic property by accident.
What do the organic farmers do when the loads of pests come into their farm because of the neighboring mono-cultured farm. Do they use pesticides too? Probably.
At this point, who cares about how healthy it is. In this age of systems (some corrupt), we need to be more concerned with safety. I hope this post has inspired you to revolt against food companies. If not please look into it, watch a documentary (Food Inc., Fresh, Etc.).
