Mexican Street Corn Style Grilled Zucchini

those of you who are close to me/understand me, fully get my obsession with elotes; mexican street corn.  grilled corn smothered in a creamy-lime-chili spiked sauce covered with cheese and cilantro. #amazing
if it's on the menu, i'll order it, if i'm at home, i'll make it                     .  and sometimes even up the ante by adding creamy avocado. #thebest
tonight we were out of corn, but in full supply of fresh zucchini, and if memory serves me right, i remembered stumbling upon a pinterest post that subbed out corn for squash, so i immediately jumped on board.

the result?
equally delicious. and even more so after clocking in a solid 10 miles on foot today.  
cheese and mayo for the win. always.
