Cowboy Caviar

So, a friend on my Facebook list, Jen Walker Owen, said she had made this recipe and couldn't stop eating it. Well, I was inspired to make it as part of Christmas Eve dinner and, omigod, we couldn't stop eating it! The recipe was submitted by someone called Janae55 on the "SparkRecipes" website. I added cumin because I saw a variation somewhere else and thought it sounded really good. But that's the only change I made.

1 (17 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
