Grilled corn is one of my favorites, and we'll often toss some ears of corn on the grill when we're cooking out. This is a great recipe and I'm looking forward to making up some of this. I'd like to try this both ways, using honey one time, and maple syrup the other. I'm not sure which one I'd prefer. We have both on hand, so it'd be easy to experiment with both. The maple would provide a more distinctive taste for sure.

This looks so delicious. I love the idea of using maple syrup in the dressing... what a unique idea!

This looks like a great salad. I don't think I would use maple syrup in the dressing. I would rather use honey. It looks really delicious and I think the fact that the corn is grilled must give it a different kind of smoky flavor which must be nice. I would really like to try this.

I think that using olive oil the dressing would be a fine substitute for making the dressing, but I would use an extra virgin olive oil that has a clean taste. I'm not sure if I'd brush olive oil on the corn when grilling it as the corn may easily burn. I think I might make this without the added sweetness the maple syrup as the corn itself might be sweet enough.

Wow! I never thought to make this salad!! For those who might not have the time to grill corn, go to Trader Joe's. In the veggie freezer section is supersweet grilled corn. Tastes great!

Has anyone substituted the veg oil for olive oil? For health reasons, we don't like to use veg oil, and olive oil tastes better, but, is not always the right "mix" with some flavors.

What kind of dressing?

The dressing refers to the oil and lime juice mixture.
