Grilled Zucchini with Corn-Radish Salsa

Grilled Zucchini with Corn-Radish Salsa

As a vegetarian it’s really important for me to learn as many ways possible to cook veggies so that I never feel like I’m eating “just the same old thing.” I got this recipe from the Vegetarian Times website. This website is really great and my most favorite one to use. It has a great search function. You can type in all the ingredients you want to use (or, as I frequently do, whatever is in my fridge that really NEEDS to be used before it kicks the bucket) and separate them with commas and the search will pull up recipes that use all or some of those things. Link to the recipe online here! It wasn’t too hard to make and the marinade was really delicious for how simple it was. Next time I might make a few different marinades using (instead of lime) lemon, orange, grapefruit…the world is my oyster! I suggest you try this recipe out for yourself.

Grilled Zucchini with Corn-Radish Salsa

1/4 cup olive oil
4 Tbs. lime juice, divided
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 ears corn, husked, silk removed
1 cup thinly sliced radishes

1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 jalapeño chile, seeded and finely diced
1 tsp. grated lime zest
Pinch cayenne pepper

2. Let stand 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
3. Preheat grill over medium heat.
4. Brush garlic oil over corn.
5. Grill 8 minutes, or until corn starts to char, turning often.
6. Transfer to cutting board, and cut off kernels.
