    Maeve R's Note:

    I got this on Epicurious.com, from Bon Appetit. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks good. I'd substitute the jalapenos with some nice Hatch hot chiles.

      I have been making this salad since it was first published in Bon Appetit in July 1994. We love it! Healthy and tasty. Grilled sweet corn imparts a nice smoky flavor. To save time, use shredded carrots found in the produce section. Fresh ingredients are ideal, but I have also made with canned diced tomatoes and canned corn. If I don't have roasted chicken, I season 4 chicken breasts with chili powder and ground cumin, broil, and cut into 1" chunks. Great served with cheese quesadillas or refried bean & Monterey Jack cheese quesadillas.
