Summer time in Michigan is loaded with delicious produce. This combination of corn and cherries - quintessential Michigan tastes - is one that cannot be beat. Paired with tangy goat cheese and tender Revolution Farms Bibb lettuce, this salad sings the song of summer. Serve it at your next BBQ for a delicious side or keep this all to yourself for a tasty entree. Looking to add additional protein? Try this topped with sliced grilled steak. 

 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 package of Revolution Farms Bibb Lettuce 

  • 1 ear of corn, charred on the grill 

  • 1 ½ cups of cherries, pitted and sliced in half 

  • ½ cup goat cheese crumbles 

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds 

 

Preparation: 

  1. Wash and dry Bibb lettuce. 

  2. Char corn on the grill by removing the husk and rubbing with olive oil. Place on the grill for 2-3 minutes per side and rotate until all sides have some charred kernels. Let cool slightly before slicing off the cobb.

  3. Place Bibb lettuce down on a platter. Top with charred corn kernels, sliced and pitted cherries, sliced almonds, and goat cheese crumbles.

  4. Serve with balsamic vinaigrette or dressing of choice.
