Recipe

Use a grill pan if the weather isn't cooperating.

Yield: 6 Servings
Prep time: 30 Mins
Cooking time: 10 Mins

Ingredients

For the Vinaigrette:

  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp toasted cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp chopped cilantro

  • 6 zucchini, trimmed and cut lengthwise into ½ in (6mm) slices
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 3 red or yellow bell peppers, quartered and seeded
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cut into wedges

Special Equipment:

  • Ridged grill pan

Directions

1. To make the dressing, zest 1 lemon and whisk this and the juice of both lemons, the cumin, honey, and garlic in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil then add the cilantro. Season.

2. Oil the grate on an outdoor grill (or indoors, oil a grill pan). Lightly oil the zucchini. Grill the zucchini, turning once, about 3 minutes, or until seared with marks on both sides. Transfer to a plate. Grill the peppers, skin side down, until the skins are blackened and blistered, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. When cool enough to handle, peel and cut into strips.

3. Combine the zucchini, peppers, scallions, and tomatoes. Toss gently with the vinaigrette, and serve at room temperature.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The vinaigrette can be made 3 days ahead.
