Chopped Salad With Roasted Corn Relish

“I got this recipe out of a Family Circle magazine that was at my salon. Made it for dinner and just loved it. It calles for fresh corn shucked and grilled on grill along with the peppers. But I was in a rush and just took frozen corn, thawed out and fried up in a hot skillet with the onion pieces. Then roasted the peppers on an open flame on my gas stove... I am putting the recipe as it reads but you can use my shorter version if you do not want to mess with the grill.”
