I stumbled across this recipe last summer when I needed something to make for my sister's wedding reception. The family loved it, so I took it to a pot luck at work and they loved it too.

I've taken this salad to two BBQ's and it's been a big hit! The sweet, smokiness of the roasted corn, spicy jalapeno and cool onion flavors are great together on a hot summer afternoon.
