  2. In a large salad bowl, toss together salad greens, steamed corn, tomatoes and desired amount (approximately 3-4 tablespoons) of prepared Roasted Red Bell Pepper Vinaigrette. Top salad with diced avocado, pepitas and cheese. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Steaming the corn in the microwave helps soften the corn slightly. However, corn can be added to salad raw, if desired.
-
Store bought roasted red bell pepper or sun-dried tomato vinaigrette can be used instead of the homemade vinaigrette.
-
For vegan, omit cheese.
