Heat grill pan or grill over medium; coat with nonstick spray.

Grill corn, turning occasionally, until charred, about 10 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut kernels off cobs.

Whisk together lime juice, oil, agave, cumin, and coriander for the vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper.

Combine corn kernels, beans, and scallions. Divide romaine between two serving bowls, top with cornbean mixture and sliced avocados, then drizzle with vinaigrette.
