Grilled Summer Salad
The ingredients may be familiar, but this light, refreshing side dish is anything but ordinary.
1 ear Corn
1 Large Sweet Onion
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Medium Zucchini
4 Campari Tomatoes
3/4 cup Crumbled Queso Fresco
1/2 cup Loosely Packed Fresh Cilantro
1 clove Garlic
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
2 tsp Lime Zest
1 tbsp Lime Juice
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
3 tbsp Olive Oil
Slice the Large Sweet Onion into quarter-inch rounds and place on a baking sheet. Shuck the Corn and place it on the sheet. Brush the onions and corn with Olive Oil, just so it's lightly coated.
Place the corn and sliced Large Sweet Onion on the grill and cook, turning every so often to avoid burning until the corn and onions are tender and have taken on a little char. Transfer the vegetables to a sheet pan and set aside.
Using a vegetable peeler or a mandoline, set on very thin slices to slice the Medium Zucchini into thin ribbons and transfer to a large bowl.
Cut the Campari Tomatoes into bite sized wedges and add to the zucchini. Separate the onions into rings and add them to the salad. Cut the corn off the cob and transfer to the salad. Add the Crumbled Queso Fresco toss into the salad.
Just before serving, toss the salad with the dressing and sprinkle with the Loosely Packed Fresh Cilantro.
Serve and enjoy!
