A cool and refreshing salad is just what every summertime barbecue needs. This crunchy roasted corn and jicama confetti salad has a medley of delicious and healthy vegetables with a creamy avocado dressing. I recommend serving this salad in place of coleslaw for a nice change. Fire roasted corn can be purchased at Trader Joes grocery store in the frozen vegetable section. I have also seen it at other grocery stores as well. The smokey aroma of the roasted corn adds to the flavor of the salad. It would be delicious alongside this citrus tequila chicken.
