Black Bean Roasted Corn Salad

I love corn season!  During the summer we could eat corn on the cob nearly every night!

I never realized that there were so many calories in an ear of corn!  Did you know that a large ear of corn has about 120 calories!  Then if you top it with butter and salt!  You can really rack up the calories quick, so I love to find ways to enjoy corn where I don’t feel compelled to eat a whole ear.

Our favorite way to cook corn?……GRILLED! You already know about my love affair of grilling.   There is something about how it fills the air with the smell of smoke and flavorful char………the essence that embodies Summer! Am I right?

Last year I wrote a post about how to Grill Corn on the Cob -it’s so easy and delicious!  You’ll never boil a pot of water for corn again!

So if you are looking for a little bit of a healthier way to eat corn, you’re going to love this sweet, fresh and juicy roasted corn summer salad that just screams summer!

Ingredients for Black Bean and Roasted Corn Salad | recipe at

The ingredients are simple. Tender, smoky grilled corn,  juicy grape tomatoes, buttery avocado, seasoned black beans, and fresh basil, it’s like summer in a bowl.  This Black Bean Roasted Corn Salad was so delicious and satisfying I ate it for lunch one day and as a side for dinner another day.

It kept perfectly fine in the fridge for 24 hours, I can’t vouch for much past that, because……..well, there wasn’t any left.

It’s a perfect summer dish to eat al fresco and take to a picnic, BBQ or potluck……….or eat it at your desk with the AC blasting like I did!  It requires no heat in the kitchen and takes no time at all to whip up!

Feel free to roast/grill your corn a day ahead if you’d like, or it would be a great way to use up leftover corn.

One of the wonderful things about this salad recipe is you can easily change it up according to what you like or have on hand.  Next time I think I’ll add some cucumber and bell peppers!
