If you haven't prepared dressing, do so now. Alternatively you can dress your salad with a healthy squeeze of lime juice, drizzle of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste just before serving.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and add cubed sweet potato to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Toss with a little oil and bake for 20 minutes or until tender. Set aside.
In the meantime, heat a grill or grill pan. Once hot, remove the husks from the corn and place directly on the grill. Grill, turning occasionally, until blackened on all sides — about 5-8 minutes. Set aside to chill. NOTE: If you don't have a grill or grill pan, you can also carefully cook these on a gas range over an open flame, turning frequently with tongs until blackened on all sides.
Let the corn cool to the touch, then carefully slice the corn off the cob with a sharp knife. Set aside.
Assemble salad on a serving platter by adding lettuce and topping with bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, onion, avocado (optional), jalapeño (optional), sweet potatoes, and grilled corn. Optionally, you can also top with crushed tortilla chips.
Serve with Vegan Chipotle Ranch Dressingora generous squeeze of lime juice, drizzle of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep stored in the refrigerator up to 2-3 days (store dressing separately for freshness).
