Corn, Black Bean, and Radish Salad with Spicy Vegan Dressing

I am a sucker for pretty much anything spicy that involves corn, and since the season is coming to a close I am using it as much as possible. One of my favorite ways to use it is in a simple corn and black bean salad. This one is dressed up with radishes, peppers, cilantro, and a spicy dressing made with fresh garlic, jalapeno, and lime juice. It makes a perfect side dish for vegan tacos or a main course with some brown rice.
