  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Corn on the Cob
  • 1 Zucchini, halved
  • 1 Red Capsicum, seeds removed and halved
  • Small handful of Coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 Lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp Caster Sugar
  • 1 Avocado, stone removed and sliced
  • 2 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 1 pouch UNCLE BEN'S® Mexican Style Rice


  1. Place a grill pan on a high heat until smoking. Take 1 tbsp of the oil and coat the corn, zucchini and capsicum well with seasoning. Place in the pan to char on all sides and the zucchini and capsicum become tender.
  2. Remove the corn from the cob and roughly chop the zucchini and capsicum.
  3. Place the remaining oil, lime juice, mustard and caster sugar in a large bowl and mix to dissolve the sugar. Add the charred vegetables and coriander to the bowl and toss to cover.
  4. Heat the UNCLE BEN'S® rice according to pack instructions and separate between two plates. Top with the dressed salad and place the sliced avocado and dollop of sour cream to the side.
