This grilled corn salad is a simple and tasty summer side dish. The tangy dressing is a nice contrast with the sweet, crisp corn. Red pepper and cilantro give the salad a fresh flavor that tastes of summer. Once the corn is grilled, this is very simple to throw together. A full-flavored side for the summer grilling season.
