For the salad
  • 6 ears Honey and Pearl sweetcorn, shucked
  • 2 bunches fresh green asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves, torn or cut chiffonade
For the dressing
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  2. Blanch the asparagus spears (in the same water used for blanching the corn) for 1 minute and transfer to the ice bath.
  3. Once the corn has cooled, slice the kernels off the cob with a sharp knife, and then cut the asparagus into 2 - 3 cm diagonal lengths.
  4. Place both the corn and asparagus into a medium size bowl.
  5. In another medium size bowl, mix together sugar, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Drizzle over corn and asparagus.
  6. Gently mix together and chill or serve at room temperature.
