  1. Whisk together the mayonnaise, lime juice, vinegar or brine and honey with some seasoning. Transfer to the fridge if not serving within 1 hr.
  2. Boil the corn in a large saucepan for 5 mins or until just tender; drain and set aside.
  3. Preheat a gas barbecue to low or heat a charcoal barbecue and wait until the flames have died down and the coals are white. Brush the barbecue grills with some oil. Brush the corn cobs with more oil, season and barbecue for 8-10 mins, turning to char on all sides.
  4. Use tongs to stand the cobs up on a chopping board, and a sharp knife to remove the kernels. Mix with the shredded cabbage, spring onions, herbs and the dressing to serve.
