A Spring Salad of Charred Corn, Tomatoes and Fresh Peas

This salad screams spring. It’s light, bright and fresh and comes together in a jiff.


There’s charred corn (which is charred on an open flame or grill for that delightfully summery charred taste), fresh tomatoes, garden peas and feta. There’s also some avocado to make the most of it while it’s still in season and you don’t need to take out a loan to buy one. The dressing is light and fresh but be warned there’s not a lot of it, I tend to go light on dressings. Serve it with tortilla chips or as a side salad to accompany a main dish.
