Preparation
STEP 1

Preheat grill to high heat.

STEP 2

Rub peppers with oil and place on hot grill. Cook peppers until skin is charred and black. Place in a paper bag or plastic covered bowl and let sit for 10-15 minutes (this will help skins remove more easily later).

STEP 3

While peppers are steaming rub remaining veggies with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill zucchini, corn, and onions until dark grill lines appear and vegetables are crisp tender, about 5 minutes.

STEP 4

Peel off skins, discard stems and seeds of peppers and cut into strips.

STEP 5

Chop onions and cut the corn off the cob. Slice zucchini into thick half-moons. Combine all vegetables in a serving bowl.

STEP 6

For vinaigrette, mix vinegar, lemon juice, zest, mustard, honey and herbs. Slowly whisk in oil. Season to taste with salt, pepper and red chile flake.

STEP 7

Toss vegetables with vinaigrette. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and cheese if you choose!

Options

Toss in cooked or canned corona or gigante beans (from the olive bar) as a great addition for more protein.

For a dramatic affect you can also leave veggies in large pieces and serve on platter.

You can also use a pre-made Italian or herb vinaigrette.
