The times when I’m stoked about a salad are few and far between.

This is one of them!

Can I say stoked? I’ve probably used the word thrice in my life, the third being above. I’m trying it out for size.

This salad… ugh. So good. I’ve rambled about my love for chopped salads for years on this little internet page. I don’t know what it is. The crunch of vegetables turns me off so maybe it’s just that everything is smaller and tiny and can be picked up in one spoon?

I think what it really is though.. is that I can use tortilla chips to eat this salad. Now THAT is where it’s at. I’m so into it.

The salad has so many of my favorite flavors going on – bacon, feta, avocado, corn – that I kept the dressing simple: just some olive oil and lime juice. Lots of salt and pepper too, but other than that, just pure flavor. Even a little arugula mixed in with my beloved butter lettuce for something extra.

On top of needing the majority of my salads in chopped form, I sure as heck need as much texture (like, non-vegetable texture) that I can get. Enter bacon. And corn. And if you’re feeling frisky… maybe crumble some of those tortilla chips on top.

Uh huh. Do it.

BLT Chopped Salad with Corn, Feta + Avocado

Yield: serves 2

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups butter lettuce, chopped
2 cups fresh arugula, chopped
1 pint grape tomatos, quartered
4 slices thick-cut bacon, fried and crumbled
1 cup sweet corn
1 avocado, chopped
4 ounces feta, crumbled

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lime, juiced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

As a note, to chop my lettuce I like to lay it out on a big cutting board and just continuously run my knife through it (in all different directions) until it's chopped as much as I like.

In a large bowl, combine lettuce, arugula, tomatoes, corn and avocado. Add in salt, pepper, olive oil and lime juice then toss well to coat. Fold in bacon and feta then divide evenly amount 2 plates. Serve!

    I love the texture – all the corn and tomatoes and avo. And a simple olive oil and lime dressing. Perfect!

    This looks so tasty. I would probably use turkey bacon to reduce the fat. Also did you know you listed salt twice? It’s okay I figured you meant pepper. Thank you for sharing. Salad is perfect on hot days! So refreshing!!

    This one looks zoo yummy. I might just have to make it for lunch.
    Thanks for the inspiration

    Welp, this salad looks like perfection but being that I can’t consume anything without goat cheese these days, I think I’d replace the feta with goat cheese and then it’s just heaven. Creamy, salty, crunchy, bacon-y heaven.

    I am so with you on not loving salads! I want to be someone who likes salads….but…I’m not there yet. Only occasionally do I like and want a salad, and it’s even more rare that I love it. I bet I would totally love this salad, especially because it enables my addiction to crunchy tortilla chips!

    Love everything about this salad. Be sure to give me a buzz when/if you land in Denver. Just recently discovered ‘Fourleaf Chopped Salads’ – you pick ingredients and they chop them all together with dressing. Sounds perfect and it is!
