Grilled Corn, Tomato and Bacon Salad

One of my favorite salads is grilled corn, tomato and avocado with a lime dressing.  I am always trying to find different ways to use grilled corn because it so delicious right now.  I put together this simple salad to serve alongside grilled chicken for a weeknight dinner. I love how quick and easy this recipe is and how perfect it fits with all kinds of meals.  Ron and I both loved this salad, but Kellen went nuts over it. He really likes corn, bacon and tomatoes and I knew it would be right up his ally.  I also like to serve this right away because it is really yummy when the corn is a bit warm.  I also like it when the bacon is nice and crisp so I usually try to make this in smaller batches. 

Tonight I am trying to get everything together for our weekend in Door County- so excited! My sister is planning on making dinner on of the nights, and I am hoping heading up the peninsula is on the agenda as well! We are also going to take a trip to The Farm for the kids (and adults too).  I can't believe summer is coming to a close. See you all in September and have a fun Labor Day weekend! 


4 ear of fresh sweet corn, shucked
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
5 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp sugar


Grill the corn until starting to char. Allow to cool slightly then remove the kernels from the cob with a knife. 

Whisk together vinegar, oil, salt, pepper and sugar. Set aside. 

In a medium bowl, combine corn, tomatoes and bacon. Gently toss in the dressing and serve.
