Char-grilled Corn and Peach Slaw By Tucker Street

Serves: 4 people

Time to prepare: 15 minutes


Our friends at Tucker Street have kindly shared this jazzed up summer slaw full of colour and flavour, and perfect for BBQs!

A seasonal recipe, it makes the most of sweet summery peaches, is full of texture (crunchy corn kernels and cabbage), has fresh herbs, and a hint of tangy jalapeño. Tucker Street recommend this salad with almost anything – pictured here served alongside steak but also great with BBQ chicken, gourmet sausages or fish.

You’ll find this slaw paired with grass-fed porterhouse steak in a Tucker Street box alongside recipes from Melbourne’s top cafes, restaurants, chefs and bloggers when they launch this month.

2 ears of corn on the cob

2 white peaches

1 tbs rice vinegar

1 tbs toasted sesame oil

sea salt

freshly cracked pepper


Utensils required

BBQ or griddle pan

chopping board & knife

medium mixing bowl

1. Char grill the corn

Heat up the BBQ or griddle pan on med-high heat.  Leave the corn on the pan for approx. 3 minutes or until colour appears, then turn and repeat so that it’s charred all over.


2. Prepare salad ingredients

While the corn is cooking, slice the red cabbage on a mandolin (if available) and place in a large mixing bowl. Alternatively, shred the cabbage on a grater or thinly slice. Roughly chop the herbs and jalapenos and place in the bowl. Quarter the cucumbers lengthways, cube and place in the bowl.


3. Prepare peaches

Remove corn from heat and set aside to cool.  Cut the peaches in half then cut each half into 5 or 6 slices. Add to the mixing bowl raw or, grill on a BBQ or pan on a med-high heat, turning after a minute or until char marks appear. Remove peaches from heat and set aside to cool.


4. Prepare the dressing

In a small mixing bowl, squeeze the juice of the lime and add the rice vinegar and sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


5. Combine and serve

Cut the kernels down the corn cob and place in the mixing bowl.  Toss the contents and add the dressing right before serving for maximum crunch.
