Good for a barbecue side or a veggie main dish, this grilled zucchini corn salad is a simple mix of cherry tomatoes, scallions and Parmesan.


3 medium zucchini, trimmed, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

3 corn cobs, shucked

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 scallions, thinly sliced

1 cup halved cherry tomatoes

1 ounce Parmesan, finely shredded


Preheat a gas or charcoal grill on high heat.

Rub the zucchini and corn with olive oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.

Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until lightly charred, about 5-7 minutes. Grill the zucchini until it has grill marks, about 3-4 minutes. Let the zucchini and corn cool slightly before dicing the zucchini and slicing the kernels off the cob.

In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, corn, scallions, tomatoes, Parmesan and remaining salt and pepper.
