BLT chopped salad... 20 minutes

the goods:

5 slices bacon
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup corn kernels
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

lime vinaigrette:
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sugar

Make vinaigrette: whisk together olive oil, vinegar, lime zest and juice, and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and cook bacon until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Chop bacon. I set mine up like a salad bar and let everyone assemble their salads how they like, or you can toss the lettuce with the vinaigrette and mix it all together.
