Bacon, Avocado and Corn Salad by Picky Palate

[ziplist]

Bacon, Avocado and Corn Salad by Gaby Dalkin’s “Absolutely Avocados”

Ingredients

  • 5 strips Thick cut bacon
  • 4 ears corn, husks and silks removed
  • 2 ounces cotija cheese (feta cheese may be substituted)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • coarse salt
  • ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place a heavy skillet over medium heat. Arrange the bacon strips in the skillet and cook on both sides until the bacon is crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to dry. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat from the skillet.
  2. Cut the kernels off each cob by laying the cob flat on a cutting board and using a sharp knife to remove the kernels. Discard the cobs and transfer the kernels to the skillet with the bacon fat. Cook the corn over medium-high heat until it is just slightly golden brown, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, crumble in the cotija cheese, and add the cilantro and lime juice. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Roughly crumble the bacon into the corn mixture and toss to combine.
  3. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin and cut the avocado into 1/2 inch pieces. Transfer the avocado to the skillet. Taste and season with salt and pepper before serving. Serve immediately at room temperature, or refrigerate for later. Bring to room temperature before serving.

    Laurie A. says:

    When I lived in Israel and going to grad school there (about 24 years ago!), there was a tiny market across the street from the campus and we used to go there to get our sandwiches. The process to get them made was interesting. You went to the back of the store to get from the fresh produce bin (everything was delivered and made/baked fresh daily) a tomato and an avocado. Next, you selected the bread you wanted. Then you took it to the counter and the guy would proceed to make the sandwich. He sliced the roll/bread in half, spread avocado on both halves, sprinkled a little salt and added sliced tomatoes. Next, he would cut slices of cheese to put on it and added a little more salt. We NEVER got tired of this sandwich. And the whole thing cost about $1.50! I make this at home often. I use poppy seed kaiser rolls and swiss cheese. It is a filling and delicious sandwich and always brings back great memories for me! I love anything that has avocados in it and usually order extra avocado in restaurants that offer it!

    I like to peel it – cut it down the middle – take the big seed out, sprinkle with salt and pepper — and chomp it!!! Just like that! Plain. Yum!! But I am going to make this tomorrow!

    Vary the filling ingredients according to your taste and budget.
    Uramaki is similar to maki, however, rice is placed on top of
    the nori instead of inside. This is a extremely previous design of Japanese chef knife.

    I made this as a side dish for a baby shower luncheon, and it was a HUGE hit. I doubled the recipe and used canned corn and feta cheese. There wasn’t any left. Thanks! =)

    My favorite way to eat an avocado is (of course) plain & with a spoon!
    I serve it up for breakfast, though, with an egg cracked into the spot where the pit was removed from, sprinkled with a little bit of cheese & bacon and put in the oven under the broiler. YUM.
    Lunchtime calls for a grilled sandwich of turkey, swiss, spinach, avocado, & ranch dressing!

    The recipe is over here, but in a gist – fry bacon, remove, cut corn off the cob, fry in bacon, add lime juice, cilantro, bacon, crumbled feta, stir, remove from the heat, stir in avocado. Made this twice already and it’s awesome. You’d think lime would kill all the taste, but it doesn’t. Cilantro doesn’t stick out either and feta melts down a bit and adds this very nice creaminess to the whole thing. And fried corn kernels in bacon fat … that’s really quite something.
