Blackbean, corn and avocado salad with tomatillo

Amanda McLachlan





1.Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add rice and corn and cook until corn is tender (7-8 minutes). Remove corn with tongs and refresh under cold running water. Continue cooking rice until al dente (another 4-5 minutes), drain, rinse under cold running water and transfer to a serving bowl.
2.Remove corn kernels with a sharp knife, trying to keep them in clusters, then add to rice with beans, avocado and coriander. Squeeze a little lime juice over avocado to prevent discolouration.
3.Meanwhile, for tomatillo, combine onion, garlic, lime juice and olive oil in a bowl and stand for 5 minutes. Add tomatillo and pickled chilli, season to taste and mix to combine. Drizzle a little dressing over bean mixture and toss to combine. Serve immediately with extra dressing passed separately.
