Serves 6

3 ears corn, husks removed
1 cup orange or red cherry tomatoes, cut in half
3/4 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
1 green bell pepper, insides removed and chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons white whine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons light sour cream
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
Salt and pepper

Prepare the grill for medium-high heat. Grill the corn, turning frequently until lightly charred in places, about 4 minutes. Remove from the grill and let cool.

Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar and mustard in a small bowl until blended. Slowly pour in the olive oil in a thin stream while whisking. Once emulsified, mix in the sour cream and cilantro.

Using a sharp knife or a mandoline, cut the corn off the cob and place it in a medium bowl. Add tomatoes, black beans, green pepper, and 4 tablespoons of dressing. Reserve the rest of the dressing for a later use. Toss to coat and season with salt and pepper if desired. Salad can be made one day ahead if covered with plastic wrap and kept in the refrigerator.
