Salad of Grilled Zucchini, Roasted Red Bell Pepper, Red Onion, and Corn 焼きピーマン、ズッキーニ、赤玉ねぎとコーンのサラダ

Salad of grilled zucchini, roasted red pepper, red onion, and corn 焼きピーマン、ズッキーニ、赤玉ねぎとコーンのサラダ by naotakem

Salads are not exclusively made with raw vegetables - mixing a variety of roasted and grilled vegetables can produce a really nice dish with a mix of different textures and rich flavors that can make you forget that you're "eating your veggies (for your health)."


Ingredients and preparation are as follows - this is 90+% of the cooking:
  • Red bell pepper - roasted in an oven until blackened, removed the blackened skin, stem and seeds, cut into strips
  • Zucchini - grilled until tender (with nice grill marks), cut into bite sized pieces
  • Red onion - finely chopped, briefly soaked in cold water to taper the flavor a bit
  • Corn - would've been nice to grill some, but got lazy and used a can of sweet corn drained well
  • Herbs, etc. - cilantro, parsley, basil, a small jalapeño and a serrono chile, all finely chopped
  • Extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lime juice, salt and pepper


  • 赤ピーマン:オーブンで全体が黒焦げになるまで焼き、焦げた皮とへた、種を除いたら細長く切る
  • ズッキーニ:グリルで焼き目が付き、柔らかくなるまで焼き、一口大に切る
  • 赤タマネギ:みじん切りにして辛味を少し抑えるため短時間冷水にさらす
  • コーン:生のを焼けばさらに美味しかったのでしょうけど、今回は手抜きで缶入りのスイートコーン(水気は良く切っておく)を使用
  • ハーブ類:シラントロ、パセリ、バジル、ハラペーニョとセロノチリの青唐辛子を一本づつ、全てみじん切り
  • 調味料:エキストラバージンオリーブオイル、ライム果汁、塩コショウ

Making the salad merely consists of mixing the vegetables and herbs in a large bowl, then tossing with olive oil and lime juice until thoroughly coated. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and you're done.
