Yes, there are corn flakes on this salad, and no, it isn’t weird. The crispy topping is inspired by Indian bhel, a savoury street snack made of cereal and thin fried noodles – it’s delicious and exactly what your salad game needs right now. *Chef’s Tip: Cutting the kernels off corn cobs seems intimidating, but it’s actually pretty easy. Holding the cob at a slight angle, rest the tip on your cutting board. Run a chef’s knife lengthwise down the top side of the cob, slicing toward the board. You’ll now have a flat side to rest on the cutting board. Slice away the remaining kernels, turning the cob as you go so it’s always lying flat on the board.*
