Fody's Gut-Friendly Grilled Romaine Taco Salad with Corn Ingredients:



        Directions for Fody's Gut-Friendly Grilled Romaine Taco Salad 

        1. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high.
        2. Slice romaine hearts in half, lengthwise. Brush with 1 Tbsp of olive oil (on face side only). Season with salt and pepper. Do the same to the ear of corn.
        3. Place corn on the grill, turning often, until charred all over (about 10 minutes).
        4. While corn cooks, make the salad dressing by whisking all dressing ingredients in a small bowl, or by shaking together in a jar. Set aside.
        5. Remove corn from the grill and let it cool.
        6. Next, place romaine lettuce face-side down on the grill for 2-3 minutes, or until lightly charred. Remove from heat.
        7. Using a sharp knife, slice corn kernels off of cob.
        8. Top grilled romaine hearts with salsa, grilled corn kernels, cheese, and avocado chunks. Drizzle dressing over top and season your corn taco salad with additional salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!
