Number of Servings

Serves 4


1 T. balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. minced jalapeno or ancho chili
1 tsp. cumin
Kosher salt to taste
1-2 T. olive oil
1 small red onion, halved and cut in thin wedges
1 bell pepper (red or yellow), seeded and sliced in thin wedges
1-2 zucchinis, trimmed and sliced on the diagonal
4 small flour tortillas
Garnish: Queso Fresco and Pico de Gallo (recipe follows)

Preparation - Directions

Put vinegar, garlic, chili, cumin and olive oil in a bowl, season with salt and stir to combine. Add onion and pepper and toss to coat. Add zucchini and toss again.

Place zucchini on grill and cook until just tender, 2-3 minutes per side.

Wrap tortillas in foil and, turning once, warm on the grill for about 2 minutes.

To serve: place tortilla on each plate, top with zucchini, onion and pepper, and garnish with Pico de Gallo and sprinkle on Queso Fresco.
