Roasted Corn, Bacon, & Shrimp Salad

Right before our wedding, Jeff, who previously scoffed every time I suggested salad for dinner, went on a healthy streak and actually requested I make some salads. Specifically "heartier salads." One that includes shrimp, bacon, avocado, and corn definitely seemed to fit the bill!

I mean, bacon was the real seller. Men like anything with bacon in it. Well, really, me too. I also love a salad that has something warm on it, provides a nice contrast with the cold veggies. 

And oh my gee, each salad as a WHOLE EAR of pan roasted, caramelized corn on it. It's like summer on a plate. Jeff loved it so much he's requested it twice since, and I'm pretty sure I can convince post-wedding Jeff that it'll still make a pretty solid meal. 

The original recipe can be found here. The only changes we made were to add some cherry tomatoes we had hanging out in the fridge, and replaced the buttermilk dressing (which sounded not so healthy) with a sundried tomato recipe that complimented everything perfectly. 

Do you have a hard time getting your mens to eat salad? Any "hearty salad" recipes you think Jeff would like? Share please!
