Number of Servings

Serves 4


2 to 3 ears fresh corn
Olive oil
1 to 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 to 2 T. diced red onion
1 to 2 hearts romaine, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
About 1 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated

Preparation - Directions

Heat grill to high. Husk the corn and remove the silk. Brush the corn lightly with olive oil.

Arrange ears on the grill. Grill the corn, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and let cool. Meanwhile, put tomatoes, onion and romaine in large bowl. Toss to combine.

When corn is cool enough to handle, cut the kernels off the cob and toss them with the other vegetables. When ready to serve, add avocado and Parmigiano-Reggiano, drizzle with enough vinaigrette to lightly coat and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
