When you write a food blog and you do one of these super simple salads, I feel like it’s kind of cheating. It’s not worth a blog post to say, “get four vegetables and mix them with dressing – am I a genius or what?!?!” But when you put your salad in a bacon bowl, it’s definitely worth a blog post. It’s different! It’s exciting! This bacon bowl was, in every sense of the word, awesome. And it made eating a salad on a weeknight totally not sad.

So, if you happen to be making a bacon bowl this summer, I would highly recommend filling it with this salad. It’s summery, it’s adaptable, and it goes really, really well with bacon. Corn, avocado and tomatoes – It’s basically a gluten- and carb-free BLT. The feta cheese makes it good on it’s own, and the bacon takes it to another level. So enjoy bathing suit season with this totally non-fattening recipe; you won’t regret it.

1 cup sweet corn kernels

1 cup diced tomatoes

1 diced avocado

1 ounce crumbled feta cheese

Juice from one lemon

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and Pepper

6 strips of bacon for BACON BOWLS


  1. Make the bacon bowls according to the directions – mine took 30 minutes in the oven at 400 degrees.
  2. Mix the corn, tomatoes and feta cheese in a large bowl. Wait until the last possible minute to add the avocado.
  3. Once you add the avocado, add lemon juice immediately after so that the avocado doesn’t get brown from oxidization.
  4. Add the olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Mix everything well in the bowl.
  5. Put the salad in the bacon bowl and enjoy your salad more than you’ve ever enjoyed a salad in your life.
