I have been MAJORLY slacking in the new-blog-recipe department, so it's time to share this SUPER easy vegetarian recipe.
You know when you find something you love at a restaurant, and so you get it each time you go there? Well this is a version of a salad I order every time I go to a local place in Madison called Cooper's Tavern. The recipe is slightly different there- their version has hard boiled eggs, croutons, and poblano peppers...but the tast is JUST as delicious!
This recipe is the perfect balance of fresh, crunchy, spicy, and sweet:
What you'll need to make it happen:
- Romaine Lettuce, chopped
- Parmesan Cheese- shaved or shredded
- Avocados, sliced
- Red pepper, diced
- 1 ear of Sweet Corn
- Caesar Dressing
- Chipotle Peppers (canned)
- Food processor or blender
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Clean off your ear of sweet corn and boil in a pot of water for 2-3 minutes, or until bright yellow. Put in refrigerator to cool.
Step 2: Using a food processor or blender, blend 1 chipotle pepper (~2 inches long) with 3/4 cups Caesar dressing. If you're looking for less spice, add more dressing, or a smaller pepper!
Step 3: Remove cooled corn from the refrigerator and cut kernels off the cob
Step 4: Assemble your salad! On a bed of romaine, top with red peppers, corn, avocado, and cheese. Finish with your chipotle caesar dressing, and enjoy!
The dressing is spicy, the red peppers are tangy, the avocados are creamy, and the sweet corn..is..well..sweet..duh.
What go-to dish do you have at a restaurant?
I bet you can recreate it at home & it'll taste even better!
