CHARRED CORN, SHALLOT, RADISH AND HERITAGE TOMATO SALAD

Posted on October 14, 2016 by Toral Shah | 0 Comments

I created this recipe for my supper showcase last month in collaboration with UK Shallots. I wanted to use shallots in fresh and light dishes to do away with the idea that shallots are reserved for heavy winter stews. This salad is great for the summer but I have also been enjoying it on these cooler Autumn days, making the most of the final glut of seasonal sweetcorn and tomatoes. I paired the salad with a cumin, chilli and herb dressing, which perfectly complements the sweet and juicy corn.
