In Australia, our warm climate means that many of us enjoy a Christmas lunch rather than a heavy evening meal. This light and healthy salad is the perfect accompaniment to your main meal, or as a side salad with left over roast turkey or ham on Boxing Day.


  • 4 cobs of corn
  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes
  • 2 avocadoes cut into chunks
  • 4 spring onions
  • ½ cup shredded basil
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • white wine vinegar


  1. Microwave the corn with husks on for up to 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  2. Leave to cool for five minutes.
  3. Meanwhile cook the bacon until crispy and crumble into the salad bowl.
  4. Add in shredded basil, cherry tomatoes, avocado chunks and spring onion.
  5. Remove husks and silk from corn cobs and remove corn kernels using a sharp knife.
  6. Add to salad bowl.
  7. Toss in a tablespoon of olive oil and teaspoon of vinegar.
  8. Serve immediately
