This is a great summer salad. We don’t grow sweet corn here but I see lots of farmers selling it on the side of the road so support a local farmer. It can be as simple as 4 ingredients or you can spice it up with all the added extras. I think it highlights the summer flavours. Great to bring to a BBQ or dinner party. Prepare the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together dressing ingredients and pour over salad and give a good toss. Serve with some fresh basil leaves on top.
Goran and I had this salad with BBQ steaks and roast potatoes, with lots of jalapeños!
