2 tablespoons lime juice

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 ears fresh supersweet corn, husk and silk removed

2 cups diced cooked chicken (about 10 ounces)

1 cup halved grape or cherry tomatoes

1/4 cup sliced radishes

2 fully ripened Mexican avocados, halved, pitted and peeled

4 cups mixed salad greens in bite-sized pieces


1. Preheat broiler to high. In a small cup, combine lime juice, chili powder and salt.

2. Brush corn ears with the seasoning mixture; place on a broiler pan.

3. Broil 6 inches from heat source until lightly browned; turn and continue broiling until barely cooked, a total of 7 to 10 minutes. Cool.

4. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine, chicken, tomatoes and radishes.

5. Cut each avocado into slices then cut slices in half crosswise; add to chicken mixture.

6. Add 1/4 cup Spicy Salad Dressing; toss gently. Cut two or three 1/4-inch slices from each corn ear; set aside.

7. Cut remaining corn kernels from the cobs, by holding the ear upright in a shallow bowl so the kernels don't scatter.

8. Divide salad greens among 4 dinner plates. Top with the chicken mixture then corn kernels.

9. Garnish with reserved corn rounds. Serve with additional dressing, if desired.
