Chopped BLT Salad


If you are looking for a ridiculously good salad, look no further.  This salad is really awesome.  It may possibly be my new favorite salad probably because it has all my favorite ingredients.   The combo of crisp bacon, creamy avocado, and tangy feta is really out of this world.  You can chop the ingredients ahead of time but I do recommend waiting to mix it all together til right before serving because the avocado will make the lettuce wilt.  The dressing is simple, so it doesn't over power all the fresh ingredients.  This is a perfect Summer salad!
Enjoy!

- Mixed greens, chopped
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes sliced in half
- 4 ears corn
- 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
- 10 slices bacon crumbled
- 1 avocado diced
- feta cheese crumbled
- 2 limes 
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- salt and pepper

Wrap corn in foil and roast in oven at 350 degrees for about 20 mins just to slightly cook corn.  Let cool then cut off kernels.   Cook bacon and crumble.  Chop other ingredients and layer in bowl, then toss all together.  Whisk together lime juice, olive oil and salt and pepper.  Drizzle over salad.

This looks fantastic! My fiance has been requesting BLT Salad and I had no idea what to do with it to make the recipe any other than just... BLT and avocado (or BLAT as we like to call it :)). The feta addition is perfection! Trying this tonight for sure.

I finally made this last night! It might be my favorite salad ever. Thanks for turning me into a salad girl! Also, I paired it with The Cold Cucumber and Avocado soup from Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook. Highly recommend that soup.
