Chicken Chopped Salad with Avocado, Grilled Corn, and Extra Sharp Cheddar
We’ve had 90+ degree weather all week long which means I don’t feel like cooking. I picked up a rotisserie chicken from the store along with a couple ears of corn to make a hearty salad for dinner. I grilled the corn in my grill pan and diced the chicken, veggies, and extra sharp cheddar. I used chopped romaine and mixed greens in this salad and tossed it with Fran’s Vinaigrette but it would also be really tasty with Creamy Buttermilk Ranch dressing too. It was a quick and easy meal that didn’t heat up my house and we all enjoyed it.
Heat your grill pan over medium high heat then add the corn on the cob and cook for about 12-14 minutes, making sure to turn to evenly cook all sides. Remove from the grill and let cool. Once cool, cut the kernels from the ears of corn with a knife; let cool.
Chop your chicken, lettuce, veggies, and cheese. Place the chopped romaine and mixed greens in a large salad bowl. Add the cooled grilled corn, tomatoes, bell pepper, garbanzo beans, avocado, and extra sharp cheddar to the top.
Drizzle with the vinaigrette or ranch dressing and toss to coat evenly. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
