Oh man...I love this! I'd never grilled corn before so I pulled out my cast iron skillet and gave it whirl. I added all the other things I love and thought would go well and it turned out great! The dressing is REALLY good. Slightly sweet due to the honey and the lime flavor comes through at the end. Just really tasty!! A really good little summer salad!
