2 x 420g tins corn kernals, thoroughly drained
1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
220 g feta cheese, crumbled
1 jalapeno, diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 cup corriander, chopped

1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
In a large frypan, heat the oil over a medium heat and cook the corn for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently. You may need to cook the corn in two batches so as not to crowd the pan. Once cooked set aside to cool slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, add the mayonnaise and feta and mix until combined.
Mix in the diced jalapeno, red onion, corriander, chili powder, garlic, and lime juice.
Add in the corn and mix until well combined.
