Pickled Sweet Corn Salad

Lightly pickled sweet corn in a honey dijon vinaigrette with small cubes of salty feta, sweet bell peppers, and freshly picked chives.  A simple summer salad, that would probably qualify more as a starchy side then an actual salad, but is still a lovely accompaniment to any summer meal.  A lighter alternative to the more traditional mayo heavy pasta or potato salads that usually grace the American summer BBQ.  This salad is also great for picnicking!
