6 large bell peppers, assorted colors

2 ears corn, shucked

Juice of 2 lemons, or to taste

Zest of 1 lemon

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon agave syrup or honey, or to taste

1/2 teaspoon chipotle or New Mexico chile powder, or to taste

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1. Core the peppers and cut them into lengthwise strips no thicker than one-eighth inch and about 2 1/2 inches long. Place the sliced pepper in a large bowl.

2. Slice the kernels off the corn, and toss them with the peppers.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, zest, garlic, olive oil, agave syrup, salt and chipotle powder to form a dressing. Taste and adjust to taste.
