Roasted Corn, Black Bean, and Tomato Salad

  • 2  tablespoons  plus 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1  onion, chopped
  • 2  cups  corn kernels (from about 4 ears of corn)
  • 1/4  cup  chopped cilantro
  • 2  15 1/2-oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3  tomatoes (about 1 lb.), cored, seeded and chopped
  • 3  tablespoons  red wine vinegar
  • 2  teaspoons  Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F. Warm 2 Tbsp. oil in a large, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in corn and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven and roast, stirring often, until vegetables are lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Immediately transfer to a plate and cool. In a large bowl, combine corn mixture, cilantro, beans and tomatoes. In a separate bowl, mix vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper, whisking until salt is dissolved and ingredients are fully incorporated. Slowly add 1/3 cup oil, whisking constantly until blended and thickened. Pour over corn mixture. Stir well and season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
