Wednesday, July 9, 2008 Fast & Fresh: Grilled Chicken and Corn Salad...

I'm a sucker for corn, especially when it is during the hot summer months. Couple that with some grilled chicken and a curry dressing, I'm game.

So you can guess what will be on the menu this weekend...

DRESSING
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper



SALAD

2 ears corn, husks and silk removed
2 green onions, thinly sliced
3 cups loosely packed baby spinach




  1. In small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the dressing.

  2. Heat grill. Brush chicken and corn with reserved dressing. Place chicken and corn on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals; cover grill. Grill corn 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned and tender, turning to brown all sides. Grill chicken 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink in center, turning once.

  3. Place on cutting board; cool 5 minutes. Slice kernels off corn; slice chicken into strips. In large bowl, toss together corn, green onions and spinach; top with chicken. Drizzle with dressing.
