Fresh Vegetable Quesadillas with Corn Relish

From Everyday Food

Ingredients

  1. 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

Directions

  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. Add sliced scallions, lime juice, and oil to bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Set corn relish aside.
  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. Grill quesadillas, turning once, until browned in spots and cheese has melted, 6 to 8 minutes. Cut into wedges; serve immediately with corn relish.

Serves 4.
