1/4 red onion, finely chopped
6 strips bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup cubed feta cheese
1 cup chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
1 ear of corn, grilled and kernels removed
1 small Persian cucumber thinly sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 handful of Greek olives
1 cup halved small cherry tomatoes
a few basil leaves

1 Tbsp harissa paste (or tomato paste)
2 Tbsp sherry vinegar
6 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp salt

Lay the lettuce out onto a wide round salad bowl.
Top with all the ingredients, laying out each one in its own section.

To make the dressing, give the tomato a rough chop and puree it in a small food processor.
Whisk in the harissa or tomato paste, the vinegar, and the olive oil until blended. Add the salt and black pepper to taste.
