Recipe - Grilled corn salsa

What a yummy dinner we had tonight... we bought a chicken at Morrisons today, it was cooked with rosemary and garlic.  We had some for lunch and for tonight we thought we should use up all the bits and pieces in the vegie crisper of the fridge. I bought a couple of corn cobs and a few black olives as I had something in mind.  This is what we came up with.

2 corn cobs
1/2 avocado
Capsicum (we had about 1/4 each of a red, an orange and a green one), cut into dice
Handful of black olives, halved
4 spring onions, sliced
Handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
About half a cup of picked coriander leaves
1 lime
Dash of Tabasco
Glug of olive oil
Salt and pepper

We "grilled" the corn cobs dry in a frying pan.  Meanwhile, chop everything else.  Squeeze the juice of half a lime over the avocado to prevent it browning.  Once the corn cobs are cooked through, cut the kernels off.  Mix the juice of the other half a lime with the olive oil and a dash of Tabasco.  Toss everything together in a serving bowl.  Delicious!
