Brother's Tasty Summer Salad

I love my Brother and thought I knew pretty much everything about him...but I didn't. HE CAN COOK! While visiting him last month, he and his wife cooked up some delicious food! My favorite was this salad. I can't tell you how awesome it is! I would have never thought to put these ingredients together and so I am delighted to have experienced this dish and share it with you! Super easy and super delicious! Stay tuned for his awesome Tawook Grilled Cauliflower recipe! Click here for RECIPE
Ingredients:
2 Romaine Lettuce bunches/stalks, chopped
1 can Chick peas, drained and rinsed
1 can Corn, drained OR 1-2 cobs of Corn, grilled
1 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped
1 cup fresh Basil, chopped
1 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled
Dressing of your choice
Salt and Pepper if desired
Directions:
1) Chop your Romaine, Cilantro and Basil.  Toss together then set aside.
2) Drain the Corn and heat over medium heat on a skillet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, cooking until corn is slightly brown. You can also grill your corn on the grill by wrapping it in foil.
3) Add the cooked corn and drained chick peas to the lettuce mixture.
4) Top with Feta Cheese and toss with your favorite dressing. You can add salt and pepper if desired. I like Italian, Greek or a Vinaigrette with this salad. Enjoy!
