  • 3 corn
  • 2 onion, Spanish
  • 1 avocado
  • 200 g red perino tomatoes
  • 200 g yellow perino tomatoes
  • ¼ bunch coriander
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp lemon juice



  • Preheat oven 200°C or 400°F. Cut red onions in half lengthwise with skin on and place cut side down in oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Roast in oven for 30-40 minutes until soft and brown.
  • Remove from oven to cool. Then slice approximately 1cm thick lengthwise (from top to root).
  • Preheat grill to medium-hot heat. Coat corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook for 15 minutes or until well charred. Remove from grill to cool.
  • Stand corn on its bottom, hold the tip, then using a sharp knife and cut corn from cob by running knife from top to bottom.
  • Wash and cut tomatoes lengthwise.
  • Cut avocado in half with skin on and remove pit using teaspoon. Peel skin off and place avocado cut side down. Then cut into cubes, place in a small bowl and squeeze lemon juice to stop the avocado from going brown.
  • Wash and tear up coriander leaves.


  • Mix olive oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, maple syrup in a small bowl and then add salt and pepper to taste.


  • Place all ingredients corn, red onion, avocado and tomatoes in a large serving bowl. Add dressing and toss well together.
  • Then sprinkle coriander leaves and mix again.


  • You can use other types of cherry tomatoes in this recipe. I would go for a variety of colour if possible.
  • This could easily be a meal in itself. Add a poached egg for a breakfast salad.
