This Grilled Chicken and Corn Salad Recipe is brought to you in collaboration with Sunshine Sweet Corn.
Grilled Chicken and Corn Salad Preparation
Little foodie helped me create a special Grilled Chicken and Sweet Corn Salad recently.
She loved helping with the fresh ears of corn and proved to be a better de-silker than I am. Her autism gives her great attention to detail. She did so well, I gave her the additional job of wrapping the ears in foil, which she rocked as well.
I just grilled the corn along with marinated chicken breasts, then cut the kernels from the cob, in preparation for making the salad. Ergo Chef Pro-Series 7″ Santoku pictured (one of my fave knives)
The grilled sweet corn and chicken, are simply served along with chopped sweet red peppers over leafy green lettuce and topped with a nice creamy Roasted Garlic Ranch Dressing my Avocado Lime Ranch would also be a fabulous choice for this salad.
