Grilled Garden Salad

The heat of the grill transforms vegetables, intensifying their flavors and drawing out their sweetness. Lemon and thyme add a light, summery note.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 tomatoes, halved
  • 5 pattypan or baby summer squashes, halved if large
  • 2 heads radicchio, quartered
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch rings
  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered, seeds and ribs removed

  • 1 portobello mushroom cap, cut into 1/2-inch slices

Variations

You can add or substitute other seasonal vegetables to this simple salad as you desire.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat grill to medium. (If you are using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 5 to 6 seconds.) Brush vegetables with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill vegetables, turning occasionally, until tender and slightly charred, 2 to 8 minutes (times vary depending on vegetable). Transfer grilled vegetables to a platter; add lemon juice, thyme, salt, and pepper, and toss. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    This was simply lovely. I served it with salmon with corn relish and it was the perfect summer treat. Makes a gorgeous side or a great first course
