This corn and okra salad gets loads of flavor from the grill. If okra isn't your jam, you could slice a large zucchini into planks to grill, then chop and stir into the salad. Grill some chicken thighs or tofu steaks to serve alongside., August 2022

Instructions Checklist
  • Place a grill basket on a grill; preheat on high for 10 minutes.

  • Brush corn with 2 teaspoons oil. Brush scallions with 2 teaspoons oil. Toss okra with 2 teaspoons oil in a medium bowl.

Grill the vegetables, turning occasionally, until lightly charred in spots, 3 to 4 minutes for the scallions and 8 to 10 minutes for the corn and okra.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/3 cup oil, vinegar, garlic, honey, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

  • Cut the corn from the cobs and slice the scallions into 2-inch pieces. Add the corn and scallions to the dressing along with the okra and feta; stir gently to combine.
