There is something about grilled veggies that makes my heart go pitter-patter.  Grilling brings out a smoky goodness that you just can’t get elsewhere.

In this recipe, grilling the corn really brings out the natural sweetness of the corn.  And, when you pair that with the peppery onion and the tang from the lime juice, you have salad nirvana.

I love how colorful this salad is.  All of the colors from the peppers, onions and beautiful corn are just bursting from the bowl. It’s just so pretty.  This salad is great to eat on its own or use it as a topping for tacos, burgers, salads….anything!

Plus, it travels well.  So it’s perfect for outdoor parties and tailgating!

I made this Grilled Corn Salad on my Napoleon Prestige P500 grill.  The more I use this grill, the more I love it.  There are so many features that make grilling fun.   From the craftsmanship to the ease-of-use to gorgeous style, this grill has everything I need.  It’s easy to see why I love this grill – just watch this video:
