Romaine and Charred Corn Salad with Avocado Dressing

  • FAST

Smashing ripe avocado with olive oil, lemon juice, honey and garlic creates a fantastic, creamy dressing for this hearty salad by Molly Chester.

  1. 2 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 3 to 4 large ears)
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. 2 teaspoons honey
  5. 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  6. 1/2 Hass avocado, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  7. Kosher salt
  8. Pepper
  9. Three 6- to 8-ounce romaine hearts, torn into bite-size pieces
  10. 1/2 cup very thinly sliced red onion
  11. 1/2 cup shredded pecorino cheese, plus more for garnish
  1. Preheat the broiler. Spread the corn kernels on a large rimmed baking sheet. Broil 6 inches from the heat for about 
5 minutes, until lightly charred. Let the 
corn kernels cool completely.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice, honey and garlic. Add the avocado and, using a fork, lightly smash it against the side of the bowl and mix it in to form a chunky dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. In a large bowl, toss the cooled corn with the romaine pieces, sliced onion and the 1/2 cup of pecorino cheese. Add the dressing, season with salt and pepper and toss well. Garnish the salad with shredded cheese and serve right away.
