- 3 ears corn, husks and silks removed

- 1 ½ teaspoons paprika

- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Drizzle the corn with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and on a greased grill pan over high heat, grill the corn, turning on all sides, until cooked and slightly charred, about 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the bread cubes, butter, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Gently toss until all the bread is coated with the spice mixture. Spread on the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool.
Slice the kernels off the corn cobs and then in a large bowl, combine the corn, tomatoes, greens, toasted bread cubes, more salt and pepper if needed. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the white wine vinegar, and toss.
