Get the most out of your grill space by adding a little char to every element of this quick, fresh corn salad. Add all the vegetables at once; remove each as it finishes cooking. Got a summer vegetable bounty? Add grilled summer squash or more multicolored peppers to the salad. Stick to a Mexican theme, or go Greek by swapping red wine vinegar for the cider vinegar and crumbled feta for the Cotija cheese.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to high (450°F to 550°F).

Step 2

Coat grill grate and corn, bell peppers, and shallot with cooking spray. Add vegetables to grill. Cook corn 14 minutes, turning after 7 minutes. Cook bell peppers 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Cook shallot 8 minutes, turning after 4 minutes. Remove vegetables from grill; cool 5 minutes.

Step 3

Cut corn kernels from ears and place in a bowl. Cut bell peppers into 3/4-inch pieces; add to corn. Chop shallot; add to corn mixture. Add parsley, oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper to corn mixture; toss. Sprinkle with cheese.
