A Favorite Salad

Today I wanted to share one of our favorite salads around here.   The recipe says it only serves 2 but I usually make sure to add much more lettuce so that we have enough for all of us and some leftovers.  I almost always make it with The Pioneer Women's Roasted Chicken Legs for dinner but it could be perfect served just for lunch!

BLT Chopped Salad with Corn, Feta and Avocado 


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


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!
