Let's Make It
Heat grill pan on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, mix sour cream, lime juice, adobo sauce and 1 Tbsp. cilantro until blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Place corn, pepper and onion in hot grill pan. Add enough asparagus spears to fit in single layer on bottom of pan. Brush vegetables in pan evenly with half the dressing. Grill 8 to 10 min. or until corn and asparagus are crisp-tender and lightly browned, turning occasionally. Remove corn and cooked asparagus from pan. Add remaining asparagus to peppers and onions in pan; brush asparagus with remaining dressing. Cook 8 to 10 min. or until all vegetables are crisp-tender, turning occasionally. Remove all vegetables from pan; cool slightly.
Cut kernels off corn cob; place kernels in medium bowl. Chop red pepper and onion. Add to corn; mix lightly.
Place asparagus on platter; drizzle with sour cream mixture. Top with corn salsa, cheese and remaining cilantro.
Substitute 1 cup thawed frozen charred corn for the grilled fresh corn kernels. Cook pepper and onion pieces in hot grill pan as directed; cool, then mix with the thawed frozen charred corn before serving as directed.
Enjoy the medley of colors in this sensational low-sodium side dish. In addition to the asparagus being rich in vitamin A, it also teams up with the other vegetables to provide a good source of vitamin C.
