- For the pickled corn:
- 1⁄2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 T honey
- 1 t mustard seeds
- 1 T sea salt
- 1 T peppercorns
- 135 g baby corn
- For the salad:
- 4 sweetcorn cobs, cooked
- 1 x 90 g sachet Woolworths pickled red onion petals
- 3 celery stalks with leaves, sliced
- 3 T coriander, chopped
- wraps, chargrilled
- For the dressing, whisk:
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 2 t coriander, chopped
- 1⁄2 green chilli, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 lemon, juiced
- 1 T honey
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Bring the vinegar, honey, mustard seeds and seasoning to a simmer. When hot, pour over the baby corn and set aside for a few hours, or even a day or two, to pickle.
To make the salad, chargrill 2 cobs sweetcorn over an open flame.
Cut the kernels off all of the sweetcorn cobs and toss with the pickled baby corn, pickled red onion, celery and coriander. Drizzle over the dressing and serve with wraps and pulled pork or braaied lime-and-chilli chicken.
Cook's note: The charred sweetcorn adds smoky flavour to the salad, which contains great contrasting flavours. Simply add your favourite protein.
