The perfect crowd pleasing BBQ side dish

So, as my offering to Daren's BBQ I made a special sweetcorn salad / salsa - it is sweet and spicy and ever so more-ish and unfailingly garners lots of compliments-  I wish I could take credit for it but the recipe comes from my friend Ronni's cousin...I urge you all to try it.


Sweetcorn (canned or frozen, or fresh if you're so lucky)


Finely chop the onion & Garlic - how much you use is a matter of taste, I was using two large cans of sweetcorn so used a LARGE onion and two cloves of garlic.

Chop the chilli with or without seeds according to taste - I used one red and one green of the slim pointy ones from Deptford market.. not sure what type they are! But You can used dry chilli flakes, jaleapenos or anything that takes your fancy.

Saute the garlic, onion & chilli until soft and just changing colour

If you're using frozen or fresh sweetcorn cook now -

drain and put the sweetcorn in bowl, stir in the sauted onion garlic & chilli

Grate the zest and juice 1 - 2 limes - I like to 'juice' with a spoon so I can scrape out some of the flesh as well,

Mix the lime through the sweetcorn - and serve!
