Ingredients

  • 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
  • Ridged grill pan

Instructions

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.

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.

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