The best bike salad: it tosses itself on the way

So you've taken our bike-proof picnic for a spin, soaking up the sunshine and getting the most out of your bike. Now we want to embrace all of those bumps you’ll encounter on your way to the park by whipping up an awesome 'bike salad' that tosses itself en route.

This recipe couldn't be any easier. Plus, it’s damn tasty. Simply dump all of the ingredients into a Tupperware container, seal well, then place the container in the basket of your vintage bike or your handy pannier bag. By the time you reach your picnic spot in the sun, your Mexican corn salad will be tossed to juicy perfection!

Mexican corn salad

  • 2 x 400g cans corn kernels (or 4 fresh corn cobs if you’re out to impress)
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 small red onion
  • ½ cup coriander leaves
  • 1 long red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Salt and pepper

Drain the corn kernels and place in a larger plastic container (make sure it has a good seal!). Core then chop the capsicum, then finely chopped the onion. Chuck in the coriander leaves and red chilli, then season with a sprinkle of ground cumin, lime juice and a healthy dose of salt and pepper. No need to mix – this bad boy will be mingling like it’s no one’s business.

If you're feeling fancy, barbecue some steaks or chicken skewers once you get to the park, or simply pile into tortillas and top with a dollop of sour cream. Ole!
