  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced jalapeños (with seeds)
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 2 bunches scallions, halved
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • Four 6-ounce boneless, skin-on chicken breasts

How to make this recipe

  1. Make the Dressing

    In a bowl, whisk all of the ingredients.

  2. Make the Salad

    Light a grill. Remove all but the last layer of green husk from the corn. In a bowl, soak the corn in water for 10 minutes, then drain.

  3. Make the Salad

    In a bowl, toss the scallions with 2 tablespoons of the oil; season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, coat the chicken with the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and the rosemary; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Make the Salad

    Grill the corn, scallions and chicken over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until the corn and scallions are lightly charred and the chicken is cooked through, 5 minutes for the scallions and 15 minutes for the corn and chicken. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice across the grain.

  5. Make the Salad

    Chop the scallions into 1-inch pieces. Remove the husks and cut the corn kernels off of the cobs. Transfer the scallions and corn to a large bowl; add the tomatoes, basil and half of the dressing and toss. Transfer the salad to a platter. Top with the chicken and garnish with chives and lime zest. Serve the remaining dressing at the table.
