Salad

  1. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
  2. Grill the corn and carrots for 10 minutes or until cooked and nicely caramelized, turning them over frequently. Let cool. Cut the kernels off the cobs and the carrots into rounds on an angle.
  3. Place the corn and carrots in a bowl. Add the lettuce and half of the chimichurri. Mix well. Adjust the seasoning.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish. Top with the avocado and edible flowers, if desired. Serve with the remaining chimichurri.

Note

The chimichurri is also delicious as a marinade for shrimp, chicken or tofu.
