Skillet Esquites (Mexican Street Corn Salad) with Dorothy

From Dorothy: "I’m showing off the Tuxton Concentrix 2-Piece Nonstick Frypan Set to make this skillet recipe easy.  Isn’t this blush pink color fabulous? I think pans can and should be both useful AND beautiful!

The set comes with 8-inch and 11-inch frypans that have a core of aluminum for even heat, a stainless steel body and a ceramic coating for the smoothest, slipperiest nonstick finish I’ve cooked with. In fact, it is so slick I have done a fried egg in the small skillet with no added fat whatsoever!"
