Grilled Chicken, Corn & Avocado Salad with Chipotle Ranch Dressing

We ate dinner on the back patio last night. It's a beautiful thing to leave the confines of our kitchen and house and eat amongst nature.  Bring on al fresco dining season!

This salad stirs up images of outdoor dining, even if the weather doesn't cooperate.  Grilled chicken, fresh corn, tomatoes and avocado, all tied together with the creamy and zesty Chipotle Ranch Dressing recipe I shared in my last post:

Grilled Chicken, Corn & Avocado Salad with Chipotle Ranch Dressing

1/2 pound chicken breasts, grilled and sliced
6 ounces spring greens or other lettuce
1 cup fresh or frozen corn
2 tomatoes, cut into 1/8s (we used roma tomatoes)
1 cup reduced-fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 avocado
1 lime
Homemade Chipotle Ranch Dressing

Season the chicken with salt and pepper and grill until cooked through and no longer pink inside.  (Alternatively this salad is a great use for leftover grilled or even rotisserie chicken).

Divide the greens among 4 bowls.  Sprinkle each salad with the corn and tomato.  Add the shredded cheese to each bowl.

Slice the avocado and sprinkle with a bit of lime juice to keep it from browning too quickly.  Place the avocado on top of each salad.  

Drizzle with the Chipotle Ranch Dressing.

Serves 4.

Ahh...a great salad for dining al fresco!

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
