Grill steak to desired doneness. If you choose to grill the corn, place it next to the steak during the last five minutes of grilling and turn occasionally. Remove from grill and cover steak loosely; allow to sit 5-10 minutes. Cut corn from cob; cut the cooled steak into thin slices, cutting across the grain.

Place salad greens on four plates and top with corn, chopped avocado, crushed chips, and onion. Top with steak slices and drizzle all with dressing. You can also prepare this on a single platter if you prefer. Salad can be served chilled or at room temperature.
