Summer is for sweet corn

We made this last night. It took very very little time and was a perfect side dish (or, considering how much of it i ate ... a meal). Essentially you can add whatever you would like in this ... its a great hodge-podge dish and looks great in simple white bowl because its so colorful.

Orzo Feta and Corn Salad
1 package feta cheese
1 red pepper (substitute long red chili if you want it a little hotter), chopped
1 jalapeno, diced
4 (or more) ears corn, cooked (you can boil the ears to soften the corn, or if you want a more grilled taste, grill them). Remove corn from cob with a sharp knife.
1 small red onion, diced
olive oil

Cook the orzo
Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl and let sit for a while to allow the flavors to mesh.
Add the cooked orzo while hot and serve with salt and pepper to taste.
