Grilled Summer Vegetable Salad

  • 1qt grilled vegetables, cut into bite size pieces (asparagus, squash, zucchini, peppers, onion, okra, corn, etc.)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1T honey
  • 1/2 fresh tomato
  • 1T extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Grill, cool, and chop fresh veggies of your choosing and place in serving bowl. Bite size pieces are best.
  • Place lemon, basil, honey, tomato, olive oil, salt and pepper into blender or food processor.
  • Puree until smooth.
  • Add to veggies and toss well to incorporate.
  • Serve at room temperature or slightly warm.
  • Take care not to over cook the veggies. Looking for the grilled flavor but not cooked all the way through.
  • Home grown tomato will be best in the dressing if possible.
  • Serve with your next cookout! There seems to always be a little heat left on the grill to throw a few veggies on after the steaks have cooked. 
  • Quick and easy, but a great way to enjoy all those summer veggies. Thanks to Chef Jesse for sharing!
