Grilled Corn and Black Bean Salad


I love making this salad. it is so fresh tasting and full of summertime flavor.  You could use frozen corn if making this in the winter, but right now is the best time to make this. I love to purchase fresh corn from the farmers market and roast it. I then freeze it for later. My favorite corn is Silver Queen.

This colorful salad can feed a crowd and is easy to double or triple the recipe very easily. This is a wonderful dish for a barbecue or picnic because there is no gloppy mayo to worry about.  You can serve this cold or at room temperature. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein. Perfect for friends and family that are vegetarians.

Heck! I love use the scoops tortilla chips and eat it as an appetizer.  I recently served it at our movie night instead of the usual Nachos and the family loved it.
