BLT Chopped Salad with Roasted Corn and Avocado Cream

One of my favorite sandwiches is a BLT.  In my opinion bacon, lettuce, tomato and toasted bread make the most magnificent sandwich. Here is a deconstructed version with roasted corn and topped with an avocado cream dressing.  For that crusty bread, I added toasted baguette slices chopped as croutons.  This is the perfect main dish or side salad, perfect with grilled meats, poultry or fish.  If you are a fan of a wonderful BLT sandwich, this is a must try.
