    This is a very good salad--nice to have the southwest flavor and still have the healthy benefits. Only 2 tsp olive oil!

    1. 1
      If using fresh corn, either grill the corn on an outdoor grill, roast in the oven or cook briefly in boiling water.
    2. 2
      Slice the kernels from the cobs.
    3. 3
      (If using frozen corn, thaw it under cool running water.) In a large bowl, combine corn, bell peppers, jícama, if you decide to use it, and black beans.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl, stir together lime juice, mirin, olive oil, chipotles, cilantro, cumin and salt.
    5. 5
      Pour over the vegetables and toss to mix.
    6. 6
      Chill for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
    7. 7
      Garnish with a few cilantro leaves before serving.

      Wonderful salad with just the right amount of spice. Although I didn't use any mirin because I didin't know what it was subsituting 1 tablespoon vinegar and eliminated the cumin the dressing was still delicious. Thanks Meow for posting this keeper recipe.

      This is really good and easy. I used canned corn instead of frozen. I would definitely not leave out the jicama, if you can find it, because it really adds great texture to the salad. It is great on a bed of salad greens with a side of corn cakes. I will definitely make this again.

      Definitely an easy salad to throw together. Very colorful and fresh tasting. I made as directed and found that there just wasn't enough dressing for my liking. It seemd dry and not pulled together. So I added about 3 tablespoons of some italian dressing I had in the fridge and increased the cumin to about 1/2 teaspoon so it would still have that southwest flavor. It seemed to do the trick. I also thought it tasted better the 2nd day so this may be one that could be made the night before you serve.
