After four months of patiently waiting, last weekend we moved into our home. We didn’t waste a second, moving in all of our worldly belongings while the last of the building work was being finished. The carpets were being laid as we navigated our boxes through to their allocated rooms.
I went straight for the kitchen, our new kitchen, and my first. When I say my first kitchen I mean the first kitchen that is really mine. There is space for all of my things, even the Kitchen Aid that Mr Swiss bought me a couple of Christmases ago. That my friends is what I call luxury, and one that I am so happy to have. HASHTAGBLESSED.
As you can imagine I’ve been home a fair bit, sorting things out and awaiting deliveries, which means that I’ve subsequently gotten to spend some time in my new favourite place, and cook little lunches for one. This griddled corn salsa has got everything I need in a meal. It’s delicious, simple, quick to throw together and healthy. Team this with a slice of toast and some green leaves and you’ve got yourself something real special.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Griddled Corn Salsa
1 ear of corn, husk removed and kernels cut off
1 half of a perfectly ripe avocado, diced
2 medium tomatoes, diced
Bunch of fresh parsley, or coriander
Juice of half a lime
Heat a griddle pan and add the corn kernels. Cook for around 5 minutes or so until the corn just begins to brown and smells a little like popcorn.
Add the corn to the diced tomatoes and avocado, and stir in the chopped herbs. Season well and add the lime juice and a splash of olive oil.
Great on its own, on toast or bulked out with a salad.
