Mexican Corn Salad

6 people recommend this
Helen Jackson’s Mexican Corn Salad recipe is a delicious way to enjoy some of summer’s finest produce, on the BBQ.


  • 4 large corn cobs
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 20 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • large handful coriander leaves
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • juice from 1 lime
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Strip husks from corn, brush with a little oil and then barbecue until the corn starts to get dark brown flecks.
  2. Remove the corn from heat and when cool enough to handle scrape the kernels from the cob using the back of a heavy knife.
  3. Toss the corn, onion, tomato, avocado and coriander together on a large platter and drizzle combined oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.
  4. For extra volume toss rocket leaves into the salad as well.

My tomatoes are the same and my Hydrangeas it's from me watering over the top of them all. Is there anything i can do to stop this happening again please. Regards Margaret
