Smoky avocado, corn, roast red pepper and potato salad

Created by Nadia Lim for New Zealand Avocado, Photography by Kieran Scott

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

2 red capsicums

800 grams waxy baby potatoes, quartered

4 corn cobs

cup mayonnaise (or for a lighter version, mix half thick Greek yoghurt and half mayonnaise)

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Flesh of 2 firm ripe avocados, cut into chunks

small red onion, thinly sliced

Juice of 1 lemon

1 cup basil leaves, torn

Method:

Preheat oven to 220 degrees celcius. Place whole capsicums on an oven tray and roast for 20-25 minutes or until skin is charred and blistered. Remove and cool slightly before peeling off their skins. Cut flesh into strips.

Place potatoes in a large pot with plenty of cold water and one teaspoon of salt (optional). Bring to the boil, then add corn cobs and boil for 6-8 minutes until potatoes are tender and corn is cooked. Drain potatoes and corn and allow to cool. Cut corn kernels off the cobs once cool enough to handle.

Mix mayonnaise or Greek yoghurt with smoked paprika. Toss dressing with potatoes and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Mix capsicum strips, corn kernels, avocados, red onion and lemon juice together. Lightly toss with potatoes. Garnish with basil leaves just before serving.
