Step 1 - Make Mayonnaise Dressing

For the mayonnaise, combine all the ingredients together in a small bowl, stirring to combine. Set aside until required.

Step 2 - Boil Spud Lite Potatoes

Bring a large pot of water to the boil, add diced potato and cook for 3-4 minutes or until tender. Drain and place in a large mixing bowl with half the mayonnaise, tossing until well coated. Leave to cool.

Step 3 - Boil and Grill Corn

Bring a medium pot of water to the boil. Add sweetcorn and cook for 3 minutes, remove from heat and pat dry with kitchen paper. Heat a barbecue or chargrill pan to high, spray corn with oil and chargrill for 3-4 minutes on each side or until chargrilled. Remove from heat and allow to cool before removing kernals. Set aside until required.

Step 4 - Cook Bacon

Heat olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add bacon and cook for 4 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Place bacon on a plate covered in kitchen paper.
