Roast Corn & Alexandrina Cheddar Salad

During late summer when it’s too hot to cook, this salad can be pre-made earlier in the day, and it makes a great accompaniment to a heat wave dinner. Cheddar and corn kernels are a match made in heaven, and turn up the heat another notch adding some slices of local chilli peppers.


Serves 4-6


• 150 g Alexandrina Cheese Mt Jagged Mature Cheddar, grated
• 6 corn on the cob (or 4 cups of corn) find these from either Patlins or Harvest the Fleurieu
• 1 tablespoon local Olive Oil 
• 1 chilli, slice into 3mm slices (if you can find a jalapeno, choose chilli to suit your personal heat threshold) find these from either Hillside Herbs, or Tsimiklis or Patlin Gardens
• 1 tablespoon of a local Apple Cider Vinegar 
• salt and pepper

• preheat oven to 180C
• prepare a oven proof baking tray by greasing with 1 tablespoon of olive oil
• remove all the outer green layers from your corn cobs, and place into the prepared baking tray
• toss the corn with the slices of chilli, and remaining olive oil
• transfer the baking tray to the oven for 30 minutes
• once the corn cobs are cool, take a chopping board and sharp knife, and start at the top and cut downward with a gentle sawing motion, cutting corn off from the cob at about two-thirds of the depth of the kernels
• continue cutting corn of the cob until all of the corn is removed
• after this very gently toss corn and integrate the grated Cheddar into the salad and then transfer to a medium sized serving platter
• just before serving, drizzle with Apple Cider Vinegar, any remaining chilli slices for garnish, and a quick seasoning of salt and pepper
• if you have access lemon or lime, you can’t beat a squeeze of citrus when in season
• serve with the loveliest smile of the season
