Big – Warm Corn Chowder Salad with Bacon and Cider Vinegar

Big is a fantasy film directed by Penny Marshall, and stars Tom Hanks as Josh Baskin, a young boy who makes a wish “to be big” to a magical wishing machine and is then aged to adulthood overnight. Between eating ears of baby corn kernel-by-kernel and his putrid reaction to tasting beluga caviar, Josh Baskin (played by Tom Hanks), certainly shows his true age in this scene.

  • 4 slice(s) (4 ounces) thick-cut bacon, cut crosswise 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 pound(s) Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 8 ear(s) corn, kernels removed
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup(s) cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper

  1. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderately low heat, stirring a few times, until it is crisp, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels and let drain.
  2. Pour off all but 3 tablespoons of the bacon fat in the skillet. Add the potatoes and cook over moderate heat until they start to brown, about 3 minutes. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes longer, until almost tender. Add the diced red peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes and peppers are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the corn kernels and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 3 minutes.
  3. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl and stir in the onion, cider vinegar, crushed red pepper, and bacon. Season the salad with salt and serve.
