Fresh vegetables get grilled and mixed together with a balsamic dressing for a delicious summer relish side dish perfect with any grilled meat.
Fresh summer relish is a delicious side dish to almost any grilled summer meat. We made some simple grilled chicken and topped it with the summer relish.
Grilling is our favorite way to make dinner in the summer. So it was only natural we made some grilled vegetables to go along with our grilled chicken.
The boys weren’t the biggest fans of this since they don’t like “cook-ed” vegetables. But grilling corn is one of my favorite ways to eat it. Even if you are still pulling the kernels off the cob. I was worried the poblanos would make it too spicy for me, but there were enough other flavors that it was very balanced.
Step by Step
Grill for about 5-10 minutes with the grill closed. Turn occasionally so they don’t burn.
Let the corn cool for about 10 minutes, then cut the kernels off the cob. Place the corn kernels in a large bowl.
Remove the skin and seeds from the tomatoes and the poblano then chop and place in the bowl.
Carefully stir in the vinegar, salt, and remaining oil.
Serve the fresh summer relish with grilled chicken or steak.
The summer relish is delicious both warm and cold. We placed the leftovers in the refrigerator and ate the next day straight from the fridge. It will only stay good for a day or two with the vinegar dressing.
