Roasted Corn and Radish Salad with Avocado-Herb Dressing

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Cindy Barr

Every summer, fresh ears of corn pile on roadside stands along the Delmarva Peninsula in Delaware. Riki Senn uses this abundance of local produce to bring bright sweetness to this recipe. The cool creaminess of a Hass avocado is the perfect addition to temper the spicy bite from the radishes and add extra flavor and texture.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 lettuce leaf, 1 cup salad, and 2 tablespoons dressing)
