Grilled zucchini salad with purslane and tomato

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus additional for brushing zucchini
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 zucchini (1 3/4 to 2 lb total), halved lengthwise
  • 12 oz purslane, thick stems removed (4 cups)
  • 10 oz pear or cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise

Prepare grill for cooking. If using a charcoal grill, open vents on bottom of grill.

Make dressing:
Whisk together zest, lemon juice, shallot, mustard, and salt in a small bowl. Add oil in a slow stream, whisking until dressing is emulsified. Whisk in pepper and parsley.

Grill zucchini:
Lightly brush zucchini all over with oil. When fire is hot (you can hold your hand 5 inches above rack for 1 to 2 seconds), grill zucchini, cut sides down first, on lightly oiled grill rack, uncovered, turning once, until zucchini are just tender, 8 to 12 minutes total. Transfer to a cutting board and cool slightly, then cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

Toss zucchini with purslane, tomatoes, and dressing in a large bowl. Serve immediately.
