Grilled Corn Salad

posted in: Recipes 0

Growing up, one of the best things about summer was getting fresh picked corn from a nearby farm. It is so sweet and crisp, I loved it. I remember my dad would stop and grab 10 ears for less than a couple bucks, and then head back a day or two later. We had corn coming out of our ears (sorry, had to...) One thing that we never did, but I really enjoy now, is grilling the corn. It's a perfect adder to a summer salad with MIND healthy grape tomatoes and spinach. To add a little crunch, I add just a little bacon and serve with a bacon vinaigrette.

Ingredients:

2 Cups of spinach
5 Ears of corn
5 Slices of bacon
1 pint of halved grape tomatoes
Serve with bacon vinaigrette

Heat your grill to a medium high heat.

Place shucked (I love that word) corn ears on the grates and grill, turning a few times for 10-12 minutes.

Bring the corn inside and cut the corn off the cob.

Place in a bowl and add your spinach, grape tomatoes and bacon.

Drizzle with the dressing and enjoy!!
