These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! All summer long, we’re bringing you a mix of recipes designed for our favorite outdoor activity—grilling! Tucked inside toasted flour tortillas, bites of grilled poblano pepper, onion, and zucchini find cooling contrast from a layer of sour cream. For an easy take on Mexican street corn, or elote, we’re serving these tacos with a side of grilled corn on the cob dressed with layers of creamy lime mayo and tangy cotija cheese.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the salsa
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the salsa

    Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise. Remove any husks and silks from the corn. Peel the onion; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch rounds, keeping the layers intact. Halve the lime crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling the peppers. In a medium bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, the juice of 1 lime half, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat.
