Grilled Zucchini and corn tossed with a lime-honey dressing and sprinkled with feta cheese pairs great with any grilled meat. It’s simple to toss together and is full of fresh, summer flavor. The honey and lime balance each other well and contribute a little sweetness and a little acidity.

Add in the saltiness of feta cheese and a touch of fresh thyme and you have yourself a winning summer side.
