Sunny summer Sunday afternoon grilling brings such joy at our house! Grilling smells so good, it’s a smell that I’ve always loved. It takes me back to being a kid -chowing down on cheeseburgers my mom would grill up! Ironically I make lots of veggie burgers and fish now but nonetheless still smells amazing. I’ve been midway running a marathon multiple times and run past people out grilling and I instantly get hungry from the smell, haha!
This past Sunday we returned home from a vacation at Rehoboth beach and decided to grill. We made Corn on Cobb and topped it with a little sauce I whipped up and some feta. Grilled Zucchini. An Asian inspired coleslaw. And salmon burgers.
Asian style slaw:
shredded 1 small cucumber, 1 carrot, 3 radishes, pinch of salt and pepper, 1 tsp rice vinegar, 2 tsp sesame oil, handful fresh chopped cilantro, 1 Serrano diced, 3 tbsp sesame seeds lightly toasted in the oven, 1 avocado diced, 5 cherry tomatoes halved.
Garden Zucchini: I simply speared a garden zucchini. Put on foil for the grill and drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled salt, garlic powder, and pepper on them. Grilled until light char marks or your taste preference.
Corn on the Cobb: peeled the husks off and spritzed with olive oil. Grill until lightly browned or your grill preference. While it was on the grill I made the sauce of:
1/4 cup smart balance mayo, 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt, 1/2 tsp cayenne powder, 1 tsp chipotle chili powder, sprinkle of salt. Stir it up.
Once corn is finished on grill spread the mayo mixture on top of corn then sprinkle with feta cheese. Place back on grill to melt the feta a little bit.
Salmon slider burgers (we bought from Wegmans ) cook until desired liking.
Let me know if you try these please! And more importantly, Enjoy!
