Using raw vegetables in these grilled quesadillas yields a crisp-tender texture and a decidedly fresh flavor perfect for a hot day. Plus, it's a great way to save time.

  • prep: 20 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for grates
  • 4 ears corn (husks and silks removed), or 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 bunch scallions, half of bunch thinly sliced, other half cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 flour tortillas (10-inch)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (6 ounces)
  • 1 yellow squash, halved crosswise and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 orange bell pepper (ribs and seeds removed), thinly sliced

Cook's Note

Combining a range of colorful vegetables ensures a wide variety of tastes and a good sampling of nutrients.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat grill to low; lightly oil grates. Cut off tip of each cob. One at a time, stand each ear in a large wide bowl; with a sharp knife, carefully slice downward to release the kernels (you should have about 2 cups). Discard cobs.

  2. Step 2

    Add sliced scallions, lime juice, and oil to bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Set corn relish aside.

  3. Step 3

    Place tortillas on a work surface. Dividing evenly, sprinkle half the cheese on bottom half of each tortilla. Top with squash, bell pepper, scallion pieces, and remaining cheese; season with salt and pepper. Fold top half of tortillas over filling to close.

  4. Step 4

    Grill quesadillas, turning once, until browned in spots and cheese has melted, 6 to 8 minutes. Cut into wedges; serve immediately with corn relish.

    This was so easy. If I can make them anyone can. I have diabeties and I am always looking for something that won't raise my blood sugar. After this meal I checked my blood and it was fine. This dish will be added to my list of things that I can eat and enjoy!
