Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 ears corn
  • 2 small zucchinis, 1/4 inch sliced the long way
  • 1 avocado, halved and pit removed
  • 2 romaine hearts, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup almonds, sliced
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • Salt
  • Lemon pepper or regular pepper

Grilled Lemon Dressing

  • 2 small lemons, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons shallot (about 1 small shallot)
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 34 tablespoons water (more as needed to thin out)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium/low heat. Brush the chicken on both sides with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt and lemon pepper. Grill chicken for about 5-6 minutes on each side. 
  2. Add the corn to the grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Brush the lemon and zucchini slices with olive oil. Grill the lemon slices for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Grill the zucchini slices for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  3. Brush the avocado with olive oil and grill face down for a couple of minutes until you see grill marks. Remove everything from the grill and set aside to cool slightly while you make the dressing. 
  4. To make the dressing, add the grilled lemons, shallot, olive oil, salt and 3 tablespoons of water to a blender. Blend until smooth and add more water as needed to thin it out. 
  5. Add the chopped romaine to a large bowl or platter. Top with diced grilled chicken, grilled corn (removed from the cob), zucchini slices, tomato, avocado (diced), and almonds. Drizzle on the dressing and serve!
