Kerikeri Corn Salad

Kerikeri, from earliest days a fertile growing area, was where the first plough was used in New Zealand in 1820. It is interesting to note that the Maori gardeners in the Bay of Islands grew garlic as a trading crop before the Treaty was signed.

2 cups cooked sweet corn
1 cup cooked green peas
1 cup diced cucumber
2 tbs. chopped green onions or chives
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup salad oil
2 tbs. vinegar
salt & pepper
Cayenne pepper

Drain the cooked vegetables well and mix with the cucumber. Shake the oil & vinegar together in a screw top jar with salt & pepper and Cayenne pepper and dress the vegetables with this, tossing lightly until all are coated. Serve cold.
