This past summer (SO depressing that it is now fall) I had an obsession with grilled veggies. I LOVE Grilled onions, my absolute fav! I will have Normy grill up some onions for me sometimes with a little Olive Oil and garlic salt and I can snack away.
2 bell peppers (any color), seeded and quartered
2 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
2 medium yellow squash, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
2 big handfuls of mushrooms (or 1-2 Portobello mushrooms, sliced)
1 Vidalia or red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced crosswise for grill pan or lengthwise for regular grill
1.To Make the Balsamic Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper. Set aside.
2.Place your vegetables into a large resealable plastic bag. Pour half of the vinaigrette inside the bag, and seal. Turn the bag so that the vinaigrette coats the vegetables. Let it sit for at least 1 hour.
3.Place a grill pan over medium heat, or bring your grill to medium-high heat.
4.Pour the vegetables out onto a large baking sheet and roughly group like vegetables together. Sprinkle all of the vegetables with salt and pepper.
about 8 minutes for the bell peppers, 5 to 6 minutes for the zucchini and squash, 4 minutes for the mushrooms and onion, and 1 to 2 minutes for the tomatoes. Flip each vegetable halfway through its cooking time.
6.Transfer the vegetables to a large platter. Serve with the remaining vinaigrette.
