Preparation:

  1. Making the dressing. Whisk the vegan fish sauce, lime juice, coconut sugar and garlic together in a large bowl then stir in the chillies. Set aside.
  2. Preparing the vegetables. Toss the eggplant/aubergine, zucchinis/courgettes and corn in a generous spoonful or two of Azada’s Olive Oil & Chilli and season with sea salt.
  3. Grill all the vegetables on a medium-high heat until golden and cooked through (about 25 minutes). Set aside to cool until just warm.
  4. Cut the zucchinis/courgettes into chunks and cut the kernels off the corn cobs.
  5. Add all the vegetables to the dressing and gently toss to coat well. Roughly chop or tear a small handful of the fresh herbs and mix through. Transfer the salad to a serving bowl and enjoy.

Tip

  • If you want a stickier sauce, add 2 teaspoons of honey and remove the sugar.
