Grilled Tex-Mex Salad

1. Place the corn on a grill and roast, turning often, until golden brown on the outside. (You can boil the corn instead.)

2. When corn cools, cut the kernels off into a bowl.

3. Add the onions, beans, jalapeño, red bell pepper, and tomatoes, and set aside.

4. For dressing: Combine ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the corn mixture and toss. Let sit in the refrigerator for an hour, or overnight, before serving.
