Grilled Summer Vegetable Salad
Sweet summertime in a bowl, this salad or side dish steals the show with its smoky flavour and pretty colours.
Servings 6 people
- 2 cobs fresh corn whole, cooked
- 2 medium red bell pepper halved, seeded
- 2 medium green zucchini sliced lengthwise
- 1 small red onion cut into wedges
- 4-6 large basil leaves torn
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 juice of 1/2 lime
Preheat grill to 400F and brush with olive oil.
Grill corn, peppers, zucchini and red onion until all are softened slightly and have some grill marks. You want them to have a bit of crunch, but be mostly cooked.
Transfer to a tray or baking sheet and allow to cool enough to handle.
Roughly (or nicely - your call) chop the onion, peppers and zucchini and transfer to a large bowl. Cut the corn off the cob and add it to the bowl also.
Drizzle olive oil and lime juice over the vegetables. Sprinkle with salt and torn basil. Mix well to combine.
Taste salad and adjust salt, lime juice, or basil to taste.
Serve warm or room temperature.
