Chargrilled Corn, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad with Chilli lime salt

Fresh, healthy Salad packed with super foods like avocado and grapefruit.


Serves 4


1 Avocado
1 Ruby red Grapefruit ( Sweet lime/Mausumbi or orange can be used if unavailable)
2 Corn on the cob
1 Cucumbber
1 Chilli
2 Limes
3 Spring Onions
1/4 bunch Fresh Dill ( Any other herbs you like, coriander, mint are other good options)
1/4 bunch Fresh Parsley
3 tbsp Sea Salt Flakes (Use regular salt if unavailable)


Boil water in a pot and add the corn to it. Cook for 10-12 minutes till tender.
Finely chop the chilli and zest the two limes. Add this along with the salt to a mortar and pestle and pound till you get a fine mixture. Chilli lime salt is ready.

Put the grill pan on the heat, once hot enough add the olive oil to it. Place the corn on the grill pan (be careful it may splutter) Keep turning the corn till they are nicely char grilled. Drain and keep it aside. Sprinkle and rub the chilli lime salt on it.

Finely chop the spring onion, dill, parsley and add it to  bowl. Peel and cut the grapefruit into segments and add to the bowl. Cut the avocado in two halves, gauge the flesh with a teaspoon and add it to the bowl. Chop the cucumber into bite sized pieces and add to the bowl(I like to leave the skin on).

Shave the corn kernels from the cob by placing it vertically on a chopping board, and running your knife along the sides. Add the corn kernels to the bowl. In a separate bowl add the juice of two limes and a teaspoon of the chilli lime salt. Give it a good mix and put it onto the salad. Mix everything well. Salad is ready to be served.
