GRILLED VEGETABLE SALAD WITH POPPY SEED DRESSING RECIPE

GRILLED VEGETABLE SALAD WITH POPPY SEED DRESSING RECIPE

From: Taste of Home

My Italian-style grilled veggies have a wonderful sweet and sour dressing. Best of all, I pick the fresh veggies and herbs from my garden. 

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • Dash salt

       SALAD:

  • 1 small zucchini, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 small sweet yellow pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2/3 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme

 

DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients until blended. Refrigerate until serving.
In a large bowl, combine zucchini, yellow pepper and tomatoes. Add oil, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to a grill wok or an open grill basket; place on grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat 10-12 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
Transfer vegetables to a serving bowl; sprinkle with herbs. Serve with dressing. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor’s Note: If you do not have a grill wok or basket, use a disposable foil pan. Poke holes in the bottom of the pan with a meat fork to allow liquid to drain.
