Grilled Zucchini and corn tossed with a lime-honey dressing and sprinkled with feta cheese pairs great with any grilled meat. It’s simple to toss together and is full of fresh, summer flavor. The honey and lime balance each other well and contribute a little sweetness and a little acidity.
Add in the saltiness of feta cheese and a touch of fresh thyme and you have yourself a winning summer side.
Summer will be over soon so I wanted to go ahead and get my last zucchini recipe posted. School started back for my kids today and once that happens it starts to feel like summer is over even though it isn’t technically. It won’t be long before apple and pumpkin recipes are everywhere.
It’s been a busy week and I’ve just returned from spending a few days in Asheville, NC at Food Blog Forum. Have you ever been to Asheville? It’s such a lovely place, especially Biltmore Estate. Look at this fabulous view. This picture was taken from an outdoor venue on the estate where we had a fabulous dinner catered by Biltmore chefs.
