Corn, avocado, biltong and tomato salad

A Kiwi friend introduced us to corn, avocado and tomato salad. Marietjie experimented a little by adding biltong and cheese to it, and found this addition adds a lovely South African character.

Serves 4 as salad or 2 as main course


  • 1 tin (1x 410 gram) whole corn, drained you can also use 1 1/2 cups frozen corn, defrosted in a sieve under running tap water)
  • 1 large, just ripe avocado, cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
    2 spring onions sliced
    2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into cubes or wedges
  • 70 gram sliced biltong (or a smoked chicken breast, cut into bite-sized chunks)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup diced or grated cheese
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Up to 1/4 cup vinaigrette


Toss all ingredients together and season to taste

Prepared salad can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 hours.
