Naturally, Grumpy would not eat this because of the avocado. However, he loved the grilled corn and I have become quite the expert on grilling my corn over the last few weeks! For me however, this recipe is definitely a keeper. I love avocado and everything else in this recipe just goes really well with it. Low-carb, fresh, delicious. Who could ask for more?

- Garlic Salt to taste
- 2 large beefsteak tomatoes, cut into 8 slices

- Grill corn on preheated grill over medium heat. Remove from grill and let cool about 10 minutes. Cut corn kernels from the cob and set aside.
- Make the dressing by stirring together buttermilk, canola mayonnaise, rice vinegar, chives, basil, garlic, and ground pepper. If dressing is too thick for your taste, add a little more buttermilk until you reach the consistency you desire.

Cook time is for the bacon and grilled corn. If using pre-cooked bacon, cook time will be less.
