Bread salad:
1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
1/2 cup water
2 cups (1-inch) cubed Italian bread
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons mango chutney
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber
1 cup chopped seeded tomato
1/2 cup chopped green onions
