  • Place bell peppers, onions, zucchini, chayote and cactus in shallow dish. Blend dressing and 1 jalapeño pepper in blender until smooth; pour over vegetable mixture. Stir gently. Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate.
  • Heat grill to medium heat. Drain vegetables; discard marinade. Place vegetables on grill grate, with zucchini around outside edge of grill. Wrap garlic and remaining jalapeño pepper in foil. Add to grill. Grill 10 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender, turning occasionally.
  • Remove vegetables and foil pack from grill. Cut cactus into 1/2-inch-thick slices; place on platter. Add vegetables. Finely chop garlic and jalapeño pepper; mix with sour cream and mayo. Serve as a dip with the vegetables.

Cooking Know-How

To prevent the vegetables from falling through the grate when grilling, thread them onto metal or water-soaked bamboo skewers before adding to the grill. Or, place the vegetables in a grill basket brushed with oil or sprayed with cooking spray. Grill as directed, turning occasionally with long-handled grill tongs.

Special Extra

Sprinkle vegetables with finely chopped fresh cilantro just before serving.

    Aunque no la he hecho, apenas la estoy viendo al momento de subscribirme, pienso que todo lo que se refiere a recetas sanas es bienvenida por mi persona, no olvidemos que tengo 60 años, ya que esta en la categoría de una dieta sana.
