Method

  1. Preheat the grill to medium. Brush the sweetcorn cobs with ½ tbsp olive oil and season well. Cook under the grill for 6 mins, turning occasionally until lightly charred. Remove from the grill, leave to cool a little, then carefully slice the kernels from the cob with a sharp knife. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly steam the broccoli for 4 mins, or until just tender. Leave to cool slightly, then roughly chop.
  3. To make the dressing, put the garlic, yogurt, lemon juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Add 1 tbsp water and a little seasoning, then whisk to combine. Set aside.
  4. Brush the pitta breads on both sides with the remaining oil. Cut into triangles and toast in a hot griddle pan (or under the grill) for 1-2 mins on each side, until char marks appear.
  5. To assemble, arrange the lettuce, feta, sweetcorn and pitta on a serving platter. Drizzle over the dressing, then top with the cress and a dusting of paprika.
