This was amazing. Aaaaamazing. I helped my GF Sarah (yes the Buffalo French Bread BFF, she knows my extreme love for food and finds the BEST recipes) make this a few weeks back. Her main squeeze grilled the corn for us, a luxury I didn’t have this time around with no grill on hand. She found it on this great site How Sweet It Is. It’s obvs way easy and has very few steps. But the ingredients all together are just SO good, so def worthy of a blog post. Also we threw in some chopped up chicken for good measure.
- 2 cups butter lettuce, chopped (original recipe called for arugula too)
- 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
- 4 slices thick-cut bacon, fried and crumbled
- 1 cup sweet corn (I used canned, ashamed, but it was what was convenient!)
- 1 avocado, chopped
- 4 ounces feta, crumbled
- 2-3 chicken breasts
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Fry up your bacon and get it chopped up. UGH, yum. I could stop here and be satisfied. Once bacon is done get your chicken cooked and chopped up and set aside along with the bacon.
Chop up your tomatoes and avacado.
Chop up your lettuce. In a large bowl combine your lettuce, tomatoes, corn and avocado.
Mix your dressing together. Olive oil, lime juice and salt and pepper. Add this to your bowl.
Fold in your bacon, your feta cheese and your chopped chicken.
Divide into two plates and serve! So good. I will make again and again. If you have the chance to grill your corn, do it! It totally adds to it. You’d think the simple dressing almost wouldn’t be “enough” but it was. Simple yet flavorful and great. Of course use whatever dressing you’d like if you prefer something different. Bye bye summer salads (sigh).
