fresh corn & bean salad

I'm a sucker for anything called "the magic _______." From Everybody Likes Sandwiches, with fairly substantial modifications.

3 cobs of corn, uncooked, kernels sliced off with a sharp knife
1/2 red onion, diced
1 small green pepper, diced
1 large cucumber, seeded and diced
handful each of fresh cilantro and basil [she suggested parsley, thyme and basil]
1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed
1/4 c olive oil
juice of 2 juicy limes (should equal approx. 1/3 c)
2 heaping tsp gochu jang [her version had paprika, old bay and s&p]

Toss everything together except the olive oil, lime juice and gochu jang or other spicy/sweet sauce. In a small jar, combine those three ingredients, shake, pour over the salad. Continue to ignore your stove or any other heat source for the rest of the night.
