Chicken Chopped Salad with Avocado, Grilled Corn, and Extra Sharp Cheddar

Chicken Chopped Salad with Avocado, Grilled Corn, and Extra Sharp Cheddar

We’ve had 90+ degree weather all week long which means I don’t feel like cooking so I picked up a rotisserie chicken from the store along with a couple of ears of corn to make a hearty salad for dinner. I grilled the corn in my grill pan and diced the chicken, veggies, and extra sharp cheddar. The greens I used were a combination of chopped romaine and mixed greens and I tossed it with Fran’s Vinaigrette but it would also be really tasty with Creamy Buttermilk Ranch dressing too. This salad was a quick and easy meal that didn’t heat up my house and we all enjoyed it.

How to Make a Chicken Chopped Salad with Avocado, Grilled Corn, and Extra Sharp Cheddar

Make the Fran’s Vinaigrette or Creamy Buttermilk Ranch and set aside to let flavors mingle.

Heat your grill pan over medium-high heat then add the corn on the cob and cook for about 12-14 minutes, making sure to turn to evenly cook all sides. Remove from the grill and let cool. Once cool, cut the kernels from the ears of corn with a knife; let cool.

Chop your chicken, lettuce, veggies, and cheese. Place the chopped romaine and mixed greens in a large salad bowl. Add the cooled grilled corn, tomatoes, bell pepper, garbanzo beans, avocado, and extra sharp cheddar to the top.

    This looks delicious. I love your salad recipes, Pam! I have been thinking of you when I hear on the news about the heat wave in your area. We are thankfully getting a break from the hot humid weather thanks to a “polar invasion”, but the hot weather will return next week. This salad will be on the menu!

  2. Looks delicious Pam. I think rotisserie chicken is one of the best of the prepared foods and we often go to it when Bev is in town late and neither of us feels like cooking. Dave at erecipe cards did a series on 52 ways to use rotisserie chicken -http://erecipecards.blogspot.com/p/52-uses-for-rotisserie-chicken.html

  3. I am a fan of chicken in my salad. This looks like a great salad for this time of year.

    Oh sounds great. We heat up Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday again. At least the heavy downpours have stopped.

  5. You had me at “extra sharp cheddar”! I might add some chopped apple to this, otherwise, it’s perfect!

  6. I just ate something slightly similar in a restaurant and now I am sooo full I feel like I’m going to burst. But this still looks appetizing … so it must be good! The beans are a really nice addition. 🙂

  7. chopped salads are so fun! i especially love the fresh corn in this one. 🙂

  8. I have definitely been in a salad kind of mood! Love all these mix-ins. Each bite is so full of fun!
