When my daughter and I were on our mini vacation in Sonoma County we had dinner in a restaurant/inn in Guerneville (sorry, I don't remember the name). I had this really interesting salad. The rest of the dinner was not too memorable.
Heirloom Tomato, Avocado, Watermelon Salad
1-2 heirloom tomatoes, cubed
1 ear of corn
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 cup watermelon, cubed
1/4 cup English cucumber, cubed
1 head romaine lettuce, shredded
1/4 cup chiffonade of fresh basil (or chopped)
Girard Champagne Salad Dressing
1. Boil ear of corn for 1 - 2 minutes, then place in an ice bath. Cut the corn off the cob and place in bowl.
2. Prepare the other vegetables and watermelon and add to the corn.
3. Drizzle with dressing and toss.
It really was delicious and perfect to complement a summer dinner.
