Instructions

Make the Vinaigrette

  1. In a bowl add the lime juice, cilantro, salt, pepper, vinegar and honey.
  2. Whisk to combine.
  3. While whisking slowly add in the oil to combine; set aside.

Make the Salad

  1. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat add your bacon grease and heat until melted. Toss in your corn kernels and sauté for 3 minutes stirring to prevent charring. Remove from the heat.
  2. In 2 large salad bowls add in 2 cups of the spring mix each.
  3. Next down the middle add 3/4 cup of the cucumber to each bowl.
  4. On each side of the cucumber add the egg slices, evenly dividing between the plates.
  5. On the outside of that add the corn.
  6. Turn each plate 90 degrees and add the chicken down the center followed by the bacon on each side of that and then the avocado cubes on each side of the bacon.
  7. Top each salad with 1/2 cup crumbled feta.
  8. Whisk the vinaigrette again and ladle on.

Notes

This makes 2 HUGE salads as a meal. You can easily adjust to smaller portions.
