This grilled corn and zucchini salad is fresh, fast, and bursting with flavor! Only a few simple ingredients are needed to make this delicious summer salad.



  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Coat the zucchini and corn in olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with Italian seasoning and salt & pepper.
  3. Grill the corn for about 10-12 minutes, turning every few minutes until you’ve got nice char marks. Grill the zucchini for about 6 minutes total, turning every 2 minutes or so. We use a gas BBQ with the lid down.
  4. Let the zucchini and corn cool for a while. Meanwhile, chop the onion and avocado.
  5. Cut the zucchini into smaller pieces, and cut the kernels off the cob (I like to do this in a large bowl so the kernels don’t fly everywhere). Toss the corn and zucchini with the lime juice, avocado, and onion. Season with extra salt, pepper, and additional olive oil and/or lime juice if desired. Enjoy immediately or chill the salad for a while if you want it really cold.
