Place the corn on a grill or grill pan and roast, turning often until it becomes golden brown on the outside. Alternatively, boil the corn. 

When the corn has cooled, cut the kernels off into a bowl.

Add the onion, beans, jalapeno, pepper, and tomatoes, and set aside. 

Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour over the veggie mixture and toss. Let sit in the refrigerator for an hour or overnight before serving.
