Recipe: Charred Corn and Cherry Salad

Many people love a big, fresh salad, specifically one loaded with local produce and flavor. With Revolution Farms way of growing lettuce all year round in Michigan, salad-lovers can get that fresh and local bowl of leafy greens.

Chef Jenn stopped by to show us how to make a nutritious and different spin on the traditional salad.

Charred Corn And Cherry Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Revolution Farms Bibb Lettuce
  • 1 ear of corn, charred on the grill
  • 1 ½ cups of cherries, pitted and sliced in half
  • ½ cup goat cheese crumbles
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • Recommended dressing for serving: Balsamic vinaigrette

Preparation:

  1. Wash and dry Bibb lettuce.
  2. Char corn on the grill by removing the husk and rubbing with olive oil. Place on the grill for 2-3 minutes per side and rotate until all sides have some charred kernels. Let cool slightly before slicing off the cobb.
  3. Place Bibb lettuce down on a platter. Top with charred corn kernels, sliced and pitted cherries, sliced almonds, and goat cheese crumbles. Serve with balsamic vinaigrette or dressing of choice.
