Fast, delicious and visually appealing, this rice salad will be a winner.

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • 1.

    Preheat a grill pan over a high heat and rub a little olive oil over the corn cobs. Place the cobs onto the grill pan and cook each side for around 5 minutes until the corn is charred and slightly blackened in places. Remove from the pan to cool.

    Cut the kernels off the cooled cob of corn by placing the corn cob on an angle and carefully cutting from the top.  Add the corn kernels to a large salad bowl.
