Roasted Vegetable Rice Salad

You might think you recognize this recipe from Closet Cooking, because he provided the inspiration for it. But this is Soooo much simpler. See, I aspired to his recipe, but I didn't have some of the ingredients, and others were just too darn difficult to get. This is his Zucchini and Corn salad made easy, for those of us who are not stocked with quinoa. --AnglophileLV

*Also, I used some of the leftover taco seasoning to flavor the pulled pork in my Enchiladas.
