Roasted Corn and Zesty Kiwifruit Salad

An excellent starter, light meal or main-course accompaniment.


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 cups (250 g) whole kernel corn, fresh or frozen
  • 1 small red onion, sliced

  • 1 fresh chili pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp seasoned salt

  1. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the corn and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes, until browned. Place corn in a large bowl.
  2. Rinse the onion in icy water to remove any pungent flavors.
  3. Slice kiwis into halves and spoon fruit out into 2 cm chunks.
