The perfect summer spin for your steak – a crunchy combo of corn, cucumber and lettuce gives this dish loads of fresh flavour. An excellent source of protein for breast-feeding mums.

Steak with corn and cucumber salad


  • 4 pieces sirloin steak, fat trimmed
  • 1 tbsp canola oil or oil spray
  • 1 × 420g tin corn kernels, drained
  • 1 telegraph cucumber, sliced thickly
  • 1 avocado, peeled and cut into large pieces
  • 3 tbsp coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cos lettuce, washed and roughly chopped (small leaves can leave whole)


  1. Coat steaks in oil. Place in a preheated pan and cook for 3-4 minutes each side for medium (about 2cm thick) or until desired doneness.
  2. Rest in a warm place for 5 minutes whilst you prepare the salad.
  3. To make the salad, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss with your favourite dressing or simply with lemon juice and olive oil.
