Succotash Salad with Buttermilk-Avocado Dressing
Ingredients
  • 2  ears  fresh sweet corn*
  • 1  cup  fresh lima beans*
  • 3/4  cup  buttermilk
  • 1/2  of an avocado, seeded, and peeled
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  onion powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  dry mustard
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1  clove garlic, minced
  • 1  large head butterhead (Boston or bibb) lettuce, torn
  • 2  cups  sliced grilled chicken breast**
  • 6  slices  bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2  cup  finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2  cup  crumbled blue or feta cheese (2 oz.)
Directions

1. Cut corn kernels from cobs; set kernels aside. Discard cobs. In a small saucepan bring 1 cup of lightly salted water to boiling. Add lima beans and simmer about 15 minutes or until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon; set aside. Add corn to saucepan. Simmer about 3 minutes or until tender; drain. Set aside.

2. For dressing, in a blender combine buttermilk, avocado, parsley, salt, onion powder, dry mustard, pepper, and garlic. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into a small pitcher.

3. Line a large platter or four serving plates with the lettuce. Arrange chicken, crumbled bacon, corn, lima beans, onion, and cheese in rows on lettuce. Serve with dressing.

From the Test Kitchen*Tip:
  • Or use frozen whole kernel corn and frozen lima beans, cooked according to package directions.
**To grill chicken:
  • Lightly season 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves with salt and pepper. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling.
