Grilled Corn Salad
by Elise Bauer of SimplyRecipes
4 ears of corn, kernels cut off
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 5-inch long zucchini, sliced in half lengthwise
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup crumbly feta
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Coat the bottom of a large, sturdy, relatively stick-free (can use cast iron) pan with a little olive oil. Heat the pan to high. Spread out the corn kernels on the pan. Don’t stir them that much, just let them cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to toast. When they get a little browned, remove them from the pan to a bowl. Lay the zucchini pieces on the pan and brown both sides, do not over cook, remove from pan.
Place corn, chopped bell pepper, chopped zucchini, red onion and cilantro into a large bowl. Add the cumin, olive oil, lime juice and feta. Mix gently. Salt and pepper to taste.
Serves 8 to 10 as a side dish.
Recipe Notes: There are further instructions for this recipe on the Simply Recipes site. Basically, you can grill all the bits and pieces but I didn’t do that. I only included the info above for the technique that I actually used. This recipe was AWESOME! I will definitely be making this again and again.
