Unfortunately, grilling weather arrived and there wasn't any decent corn to be found, so I had to improvise and use frozen, which I defrosted. I am not a fan of jarred roasted sweet peppers. I bought a small red pepper and diced it about the same size as the corn. I couldn't locate my grilling basket, so I had to do the corn and pepper mixture in a disposable 8x8 pan. I didn't get quite the char I was looking for on it that way, but I was fine with that, this time. Instead of green onions, I used dried chives. For us, these must be served on a New England style roll that's been slathered with butter and then grilled to the perfect golden brown. Even with all my shortcuts, these were delicious. I can't wait to make them with in season produce as the recipe was written.
*Disclosure- These pics are without the final toss with the vinaigrette because I knew it would make photographing them difficult for me and I wanted to eat while it was still warm. After I was done with photos, I drizzled it over the top.
