Grilled veggie salad

As anyone who has a garden knows, zucchinis are the easiest thing in the world to end up with a million extras to try and give away.  I planted 2 plants last year but only one lived for a while due to the flooding, so I planted 4 this year to make sure I had 2 plants live.  All 4 lived.  Oh, I have 10 zucchinis a week and throwing away food is not an option for a food hoarder like myself.  Sooooo, if you need some, let me know!

Our first crop was picked this weekend so I tried to find ways to use as much of it as possible.  I needed a veggie for Friday's dinner and had some other good grilling veggies in the fridge to throw in with zucchini so it worked out perfectly.  The veggies were actually my favorite part of the meal!

I had portabellos, a red pepper, some sweet corn (which I cut off the ears), zucchini, and would've done an onion but Christina is not a fan...I threw them in a tin dish with Pam in the bottom, added a bit of olive oil and 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic, salt and pepper, and throw on the grill.  You can pretty much throw in any veggie you've got, and just have at it! Easy peasy...and yummy in my tummy! One zucchini down, 80 more to go...

  1. Try as ratatouille with zucchini, eggplant, summer squash, green, red and yellow pepper, sweet potato cubes, diced tomato, onion and any other veggie you have on hand (broccoli, cauliflower, etc.)
