Grilled corn, pepper and avocado salad

Alan Roettinger/Delicious Living

Grilled corn is a classic Mexican street food, served with a sprinkling of hot chile powder and a squeeze of lime juice. This salad expands on that treat with antioxidant-rich fresh vegetables and healthy fats from avocado and flaxseed oil.
