  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Spread 1 teaspoon butter on each ear of corn and sprinkle ears with garlic powder. Wrap corn in aluminum foil.
  3. Grill wrapped ears until corn kernels are hot and steaming, about 15 minutes. Unwrap ears and grill until kernels are lightly browned, about 5 more minutes, turning once. Let corn cool and cut kernels from the cobs.
  4. Gently stir corn, black beans, and cilantro together in a salad bowl. Whisk olive oil, red wine vinegar, lime juice, garlic, sugar, cumin, chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a separate bowl; pour dressing over corn mixture and toss gently to coat.

My whole family loved this! I made this to go with blue corn chips for a card party. I'm lucky the dish made it there. LOL! The only thing I changed was I used frozen corn instead of corn on...

I absolutely loved this combination of flavors! Awesome (AS IS)!!! I did not grill the corn, just cut it right off the cob, added the other ingredients, and baked about 30 minutes. Great side ...

Loved this recipe. The right combination of oil and red wine vinegar so it wasn't too acidic. Added a small amount of chopped red, green and yellow peppers. My husband added to his "Keeper" list...

Man, this was good. There was no way I was gonna insult beautiful, fresh ears of California corn in season (by grilling or cooking it). I cut fresh corn right off the ear, and used smoked papr...

This was delicious! I used sweet bi-color corn and boiled for 4 minutes rather than grilling it. I added chopped red peppers for a little added color, but it would have been fine without it. I...

Tasted pretty much as I wanted. Good flavor, similar to what I have found at restaurants. I added about 1/2 cup diced red onion. Next time I make it, I will rinse the black beans so as not to ...

This is great! Used cannellini beans instead of black beans and used as a cold salad to accompany ribs. Will definitely make this again. jbhughes

I made it just as described except I added just a tiny bit of chopped jalapeno to give it a little punch. Very good and super easy recipe.
