    I don't have a gas stove and didn't feel like grilling the corn so I just baked the corn in their husk for 20 minutes at 450 and I think it turned out great. I didn't use the salad dressing though I'm sure it would taste great with it. I Followed the rest of the recipe and it was wonderful. Very fresh and delicious with tortilla chips and salsa!

    Loved this! I used the Quick Quacker Oats Barley, a can of mexican corn, a can black beans (drained) red pepper & green pepper. I also went lighter on the Cilantro & Onion. My fussy family of 5 loved it! After cooking the barley...I ended up using a full 2 cups. The dressing was flavorful and good, but any favorite dressing would work.

    I made this without adding the dressing. I tried a number of vinegrettes over individual servings. Excellent, each in their own way.
