Roasted Corn Salad

September 4, 2017Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2017

Roasted Corn Salad is one of those salads I can’t get enough of. It’s filled with lots of my favorite things. This salad includes tomatoes, fresh corn that’s roasted in chili powder, paprika, cumin and other delicious seasonings, grilled chicken, avocados, cucumbers, matchsticks carrots, celery, cucumbers and bell pepper rings. It’s healthy, crunchy and tastes delicious.

Every now and then I have a hankering for a really top-of-the-line salad. I love the idea of roasted corn and got the idea from a recipe I made with sweet potatoes that includes that. I also wanted the salad to include plenty of protein so that’s why it’s got grilled chicken. The avocados add the good healthy oils and then all the other fresh veggies provide crunch and texture at very reduced calories. This healthy salad is clean eating and gluten free. I served it with an oil and vinegar dressing, but this is also tasty with any kind of Ranch dressing.

If you’re unable to locate fresh corn-on-the-cob, it’s okay to substitute drained, canned corn or frozen corn in this recipe. That way you can make this salad up almost year round! 🙂

If you’re looking for a fantastic main dish meal salad, then consider Roasted Corn Salad. You can make it the night before you need it except to leave off the avocados and add just before serving. It’s a refreshing salad to serve during the summer especially when corn-on-the-cob is seasonal. If you can’t locate fresh corn-on-the-cob, frozen or canned corn can be substituted. That way this tasty salad can be served in the middle of winter as well! Enjoy.
