  • 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.
