Indian-Style Grilled Corn Midsummer Salad

This is a great summer salad that can be made ahead then tossed with its final grilled ingredient just before the rest of dinner is ready! It appeals to my Indian husband, who likes the Indian way of preparing corn with cayenne and lime. In winter when the grill's put away, we use frozen corn.
