Grilled and Marinated Vegetable Salad
- 2 Zucchini
- 1 large red onion
- 2 red peppers
- 1 bulb fennel
- 1 ear fresh corn
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbsp good balsamic vinegar
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 ball fresh smoked mozzarella cheese, diced
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
A perfect summer side…fresh farm veggies with a simple dressing.
Prepare all your veggies: Slice zucchini lengthwise into about 4 slices each, peel onion and slice into thick rounds, core and quarter the red pepper, slice the fennel into 1/2 inch thick slices and shuck the corn. You can use any seasonal vegetable here (asparagus in spring, etc.). In a large dish, drizzle the veggies with olive oil, season them with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Place veggies on a very hot grill. When cooked, remove them from the grill and transfer to a serving platter. Top your veggie platter with the diced cheese, drizzle veggies with balsamic vinegar, a squeeze of lemon and a little olive oil. Top with chopped parsley. Serve hot or cold. Great with grilled bread!
