  1. To make dressing, stir together broth, shallots, oil, vinegar, mustard, oregano, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper in a small bowl. Place chicken on a plate; drizzle with 2 Tbsp dressing (set aside rest of dressing). Marinate chicken at least 20 minutes.

Grill avocado, turning once until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Slice chicken, cut corn from cobs (or cut cobs into small pieces), slice peppers, cut zucchini into bite-size chunks and slice avocado.
  5. Arrange chicken, grilled vegetables and tomatoes on a large serving platter. Drizzle with remaining dressing; sprinkle with basil. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
