  1. Step 1

    Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on high. Spray the corn cobs with olive oil spray. Cook, turning, for 20 mins or until tender and lightly charred. Set aside to cool slightly.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, finely chop the white part of the spring onion. Thinly slice the green part of the spring onion. Whisk the sour cream and lime juice in a small bowl until well combined.

  3. Step 3

    Stir in the white and green parts of the spring onion. Season.

  4. Step 4

    Use a small serrated knife to cut down the side of the corn to release the kernels. Arrange the kernels, coriander and avocado on a serving platter and drizzle with the dressing. Sprinkle with fetta and chilli, if using, and serve with lime halves.

Recipe tip

Use leftover sour cream to top tacos, like our Texan-Style Steak Tacos.
