Salad Ingredients:

* 1 head of green leaf lettuce – washed, drained & pat dry
* 1 Matsui apple – washed, partially peeled and seeded and chopped into quarters
* 1 cob of corn – husk & silk removed
* 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil – for the corn
* lime wedge
* 1/2 cucumber – washed, partially peeled and chopped into bite sized slices
* sprinkle of chili flakes
* sprinkle of freshly ground pepper
* sprinkle of sea salt

Vinaigrette Ingredients:

* about 1 tsp ground mustard – prepared mustard is okay
* sprinkle of chili flakes
* sprinkle of freshly ground pepper
* 1 tbsp agave nectar – honey, jam or jelly are okay
* sprinkle of sea salt – I used Drogheria Mediterranean Sea Salt.
* 1 1/2 tbsp Napa Valley Chardonnay Peach Vinegar
* 2 tbsp Napa Jack’s Bourbon BBQ Sauce
* 4 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Directions:
Salad Instructions:

1. Preheat BBQ or grill.
2. Brush corn on the cob, or using your hands, massage the corn with olive oil until thoroughly coated. Place corn cob on hot grill. Grill, turning the cob as it browns lightly on all sides.
3. Tear lettuce into bite sized-pieces and place into salad bowl on paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Use the towel to pat the lettuce more, in order to absorb as much moisture from the lettuce as you can. Then, remove paper towel to allow adding of additional ingredients to the salad bowl.
4. Chop cucumber into bite sized pieces and scatter over salad ingredients.
5. Cut apple quarters in half and chop into chunks. Place apple chunks into a separate bowl. Drizzle apple with lime juice and toss, making sure all sides are coated with the juice, to prevent the apple from turning brown while exposed. Add apple chunks to top of salad.
6. When corn has nice charred bits on the outside and has been turned on all sides, remove from grill and allow to cool.
7. When cooled, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
8. With a sharp knife, cut around the cob lengthwise, removing the corn kernels.
9. Scatter the corn kernels over the salad.

Vinaigrette Instructions:

1. Into a measuring cup or small bowl, add the following:
2. Whisk ingredients together thoroughly. If desired, you can add any herbs that you like, such as parsley, cilantro, chives, basil.
3. Taste, and correct the seasonings, if needed, by adding more mustard to bring the dressing together more effectively (only if needed), or more agave to mellow it out, or more vinegar if you desire more tang.
4. Drizzle over the salad or serve the vinaigrette at the table in a small bowl for each diner to serve themselves.
