Grilled Vegetable Salad
Don’t be intimidated by your grill!!! It is one of the easiest, quickest ways to get get dinner on the table AND a great way to use up your amazing summer produce (anyone else have a garden going this year?). This Grilled Vegetable Salad + Creamy Italian Dressing is a great side dish, appetizer or main dish (make them as big as you want!). I would also suggest you grill extra veggies, pop them in the refrigerator and then you will have a ready-made side dish for tomorrow too!

This a great time to make EXTRA vegetables to use as leftovers! To revive them you can roast in the oven at 400 for 5 or so minutes or sauté in a pan on the stove-top!
