(Serves 4- 6, takes 30 minutes)

Ginger gives this salad a great island flavour. An excellent way to use leftover cooked corn on the cob.

  • 1 head Ontario Broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Ontario Red Onion, diced
  • 1/2 Ontario Sweet Red Pepper, diced


  • 1 cup regular or light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper


  • With sharp knife, cut corn kernels from cob and place in large bowl. Add broccoli, onion and red pepper.
  • Dressing: In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, lime juice, ginger, honey, salt and pepper; toss with salad. Chill thoroughly before serving.
  • Cooking Corn: Wrap corn cob in waxed paper or plastic wrap; microwave on High for about 2 minutes.
