Servings
serving (3 zucchini halves plus 1/2 cup salsa)

Ingredients

  • 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 finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño chile, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 tsp. grated lime zest
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 6 small zucchini (2 lb.), cut in half lengthwise

Preparation

1. Heat oil with 2 Tbs. lime juice and garlic in small saucepan over medium heat until bubbles appear. Let stand 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Strain out garlic, and set aside.

2. Preheat grill or grill pan over medium heat. Brush garlic oil over corn. Grill 8 minutes, or until corn starts to char, turning often. Transfer to cutting board, and cut off kernels. Toss radishes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeño, lime zest, and remaining 2 Tbs. lime juice with corn in medium bowl. Stir in cayenne pepper, and season with salt, if desired.

3. Score cut side of zucchini halves in crisscross pattern about ı/4-inch deep at 1-inch intervals. Brush garlic oil on cut side of zucchini. Place zucchini on grill, cut-side down, and cook 12 minutes, turning occasionally. Each time cut side is exposed, baste with garlic oil. Serve zucchini hot, topped with salsa.
