Fire-Roasted Corn Salad
During our Elote craze at Dotzy's, we had an enormous amount of corn on hand. So I roasted some off and added some other fresh vibrant vegetables and made this delicious and visually appealing salad. This is a great addition to any summer meal, from burgers, to barbecue, to grilled steaks. Make a smaller amount, and this is a great salsa for any Mexican dish you might be preparing.

  6. Once rice is done, fluff with a fork.
  7. Add mint immediately before serving as it will turn brown.
