Grilled Corn and Bell Pepper Salad

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 cup)

Get the most out of your grill space by adding a little char to every element of this quick, fresh corn salad. Add all the vegetables at once; remove each as it finishes cooking. Got a summer vegetable bounty? Add grilled summer squash or more multicolored peppers to the salad. Stick to a Mexican theme, or go Greek by swapping red wine vinegar for the cider vinegar and crumbled feta for the Cotija cheese.
