    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the lime sour cream

    Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise. Halve the lime crosswise. Roughly chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the sour cream and the juice of 1 lime half. Season with salt and pepper.

    Make the tomato salsa
    2 Make the tomato salsa

    In a bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, the juice of the remaining lime half, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and as much of the chopped pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
