Wash and dry all produce. Preheat the broiler to high or the oven to 500 degrees. Soak the wooden skewers in water. Core, seed, and finely dice the tomato. Cut the corn kernels of the cob. Core, seed, cut the bell pepper into 1-inch cubes. Cut the zucchini into ¼-inch rounds. If the zucchini is large, cut each round into half moons. Halve the mushrooms, quartering any larger ones. Mince or grate the garlic. Chop the parsley.
In a small bowl, combine the garlic, ½ Tablespoon white wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, and 1 Tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Thread the mushrooms, zucchini, and bell pepper onto skewers and place on a baking sheet. Brush or drizzle with the marinade. Season with salt and pepper. Broil for 12-15 minutes, until slightly caramelized. TIP: If you like your veggies extra caramelized, leave them under the broiler longer.
Make the couscous: In a small pot, bring 1 cup water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Once boiling, add the couscous, cover, and remove from heat until the rest of the meal is ready.
Heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil and 1 Tablespoon butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the tomato and corn to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the tomato breaks down. Stir in 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard and remove the pan from the heat. Once slightly cooled, stir in the feta. Season with salt and pepper.
Finish: Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir in the parsley, 1 Tablespoon butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Plate the couscous, then top with the summer corn relish and veggie skewers. Enjoy!
