Sweet Corn, Red Pepper, Gerkin & Green Olive Salad

As the name suggests, the ingredients are not tough to guess. It is simple and easy to make any time and anywhere.The entire combination of veggies is cruncy and refreshing.

Gerkin is a fruit similar in form and nutritional value to cucumber. They are usually picked when 4 to 8 cm (1 to 3in) in length and pickled in jars or cans with vinegar (often flavored with herbs, particularly dill; hence, "dill pickle") or brine to resemble a pickled cucumber.In India we have a wide range of spicy pickles and pickled gerkins are not in use in many households.
The ones that I have used, are flavored with yellow mustard. You can use gerkins without any flavoring too...

1 cup sweet corn
1 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup gerkins
1tbs green olives
1tps red wine vinegar
2tps olive oil
1/2 tps pepper
salt to taste
cilantro & mint for garnish

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and garnish with cilantro and mint. Serve at room temperature or cold.
