2 ears corn on the cob, husked

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Juice of 1 lime

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

One 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 cups grape tomatoes, halved or quartered

1 cup cooked and cooled brown rice

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

3 thinly sliced green onions, whites and green parts

1 clove garlic, minced


  1. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Char the ears of corn, rotating on all sides, in the dry skillet until lightly blackened and charred, about 15 minutes. Let cool, and then remove the kernels from the cob with a sharp knife. 
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. 
  3. Add the black beans, tomatoes, rice, red onions, green onions, garlic and cooled corn to a large bowl. Toss with the lime vinaigrette.
