When you live up north and have been waiting and drooling over the best local corn available, you know why it deserves it's place as a meal in itself
And any 'purist' will tell you, butter and salt only

It’s a vegetable. Serve it with the meal. I never heard of anyone considering doing it any other way

Do you eat salad before your meal? Or with it?

Salad is it's own course. Vegetable sides are generally served with the neal.

In any case, there Isn't a wrong way to serve. Just serve and enjoy.

For ease (and laziness) I like the magic corn method of cutting the stem end of unpacked corn about a half inch up (you have to cut enough to free the husks from where they're attached)
Microwave 3min, turn, 3 more minutes. When it's done you squeeze it like toothpaste starting at the silk end. I use a towel because it's hot. The whole cob (with corn) slides out perfectly clean. No Silk.

I like to have it before the meal.

Not for any special reason other than I like to eat the whole cob at one time rather than have one or two gnaws, than a bite of meat, the another gnaw, then som green beans, etc., picking up and putting down this big, buttery plate hog each time.

It is just a somewhat cumbersome food, and even with cob holders I tend to get butter on my fingers, and I don't like to transfer that to my cutlery. Additionally, I like to eat it when it is at the ideal temperature, and if you are eating just a little at a time, it just gets colder and colder and that second and third cob I plan to eat are getting colder as well.

^This explains it perfectly!

With dinner.

Yep..it's part of the meal..not an appetizer or dessert! I have a bunch of corn shaped butter holders so it's not actually falling off your plate!
