step-by-step
instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove any husks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Roughly chop the lettuce. Halve the lime crosswise. Halve and pit the avocado; using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin; medium dice. Place in a bowl; top with the juice of 1 lime half and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Roughly chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a large bowl, combine the ranch dressing, the juice of the remaining lime half, and as much of the chopped pepper as you’d like. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

2 Cook the corn

In a large nonstick pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the corn kernels and sliced white bottoms of scallions. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add half the spice blend (you will have extra); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Turn off the heat.

3 Make the salad & serve your dish

To the bowl of dressing, add the cooked corn, chopped lettuce, and seasoned avocado; season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Serve the salad garnished with the crispy onions and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
