Let’s talk grilling. Yes, it’s summer so make use of your outdoor appliance and soak up some rays while preparing dinner! Don’t let grilling intimidate you. It’s not a difficult skill to master and makes for a delicious way to use those fresh veggies from your garden. All it takes is an attentive eye, patience and a can-do attitude and you are well on your way to enjoying summer’s signature dishes. Try this recipe for starters, I know it’ll have your mouth watering for more. Feel free to mix and match veggies depending on what you have available or what your favorite veggie of the moment is. What’s really lovely about this recipe is the vinaigrette that you’ll marinate  all of the veggies in. Somehow, it gives the veggies the same flavor and makes them extra delicious. So get to the grill, enjoy some sun and fresh veggies!
