Add both to the hot grill and roast until the corn is slightly charred and the poblanos are almost completely charred and black. Remove from grill and cool slightly.
  2. Cut the corn off the cob and add to a large bowl.
  3. Remove skin and seeds from poblanos. Dice the poblanos and add on top of corn.
  4. Top corn with remaining salad ingredients, diced red onion, diced avocado, crumbled bacon, and feta cheese.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until everything is well incorporated. If the dressing is too thick, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water until reach desired consistency. Pour desired amount of the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Store any extra dressing in an airtight container in the fridge.

  6. Garnish with cilantro and extra lime juice.
