Chopped Barbecued Chicken Salad

Use on-hand ingredients such as bottled barbecue sauce, chopped rotisserie chicken, and canned beans and toss together a hearty main dish salad. To transport the salad, bring dressing (step 1) separately; mix all ingredients together in a large bowl (step 2) just before serving. To cook fresh corn kernels, simmer in 1 cup water for 3 to 4 minutes; drain.
