Directions

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Spread 1 teaspoon butter on each ear of corn and sprinkle ears with garlic powder. Wrap corn in aluminum foil.
  3. Grill wrapped ears until corn kernels are hot and steaming, about 15 minutes. Unwrap ears and grill until kernels are lightly browned, about 5 more minutes, turning once. Let corn cool and cut kernels from the cobs.
  4. Gently stir corn, black beans, and cilantro together in a salad bowl. Whisk olive oil, red wine vinegar, lime juice, garlic, sugar, cumin, chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a separate bowl; pour dressing over corn mixture and toss gently to coat.

We loved it! Boiled fresh super sweet corn instead of bbq. Added two cans of beans instead of one. Then added 3 cloves of fresh pressed garlic to the dressing. Also kicked it up a bit with balsalmic vingear. Next time I will add avacado, cucumber, zucchini, red bell pepper! The cumin and cilantro make it soooo yummy!

My whole family loved this! I made this to go with blue corn chips for a card party. I'm lucky the dish made it there. LOL! The only thing I changed was I used frozen corn instead of corn on the cob (out of season) and I baked it in the oven instead of the grill. Thanks for the recipe!

I absolutely loved this combination of flavors! Awesome (AS IS)!!! I did not grill the corn, just cut it right off the cob, added the other ingredients, and baked about 30 minutes. Great side dish! Thank you!

Loved this recipe. The right combination of oil and red wine vinegar so it wasn't too acidic. Added a small amount of chopped red, green and yellow peppers. My husband added to his "Keeper" list. Great dish for a summer side, or to take to a party or potluck.

Man, this was good. There was no way I was gonna insult beautiful, fresh ears of California corn in season (by grilling or cooking it). I cut fresh corn right off the ear, and used smoked paprika (in lieu of chili powder). Fresh-squeezed lime is a must. What a treat. Served it with BBQ burgers and Skewered Grilled Potatoes (another Allrecipes.com fav). The red wine vinegar dressing is fabulous. Such good food.

Tasted pretty much as I wanted. Good flavor, similar to what I have found at restaurants. I added about 1/2 cup diced red onion. Next time I make it, I will rinse the black beans so as not to give the corn a darkish tint. It looks fresher that way. I also used frozen corn, just rinsed under cool water first. I'm sure grilling fresh corn adds nice flavor, but, this was perfectly fine and got the job done much quicker.

This is great! Used cannellini beans instead of black beans and used as a cold salad to accompany ribs. Will definitely make this again. jbhughes
