Let's Make It
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.
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.
Sprinkle vegetables with finely chopped fresh cilantro just before serving.
