Grilled Mixed Vegetables

Seriously, everything about this medley of grilled vegetables is a winner: convenient to prep ahead, reheats beautifully, versatile and beautiful.


For marinade:

  • ¼ cup loosely packed fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, or red wine vinegar, plus more to taste
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced


  • 3 zucchini
  • 3 yellow summer squash
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • To make the marinade, finely chop parsley. You can use as much or as little as you want.
  • In a large bowl, mix together chopped parsley, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic.
  • To prepare vegetables, trim ends of zucchini and yellow squash and slice them in half length-wise. Make shallow slits on the inside of squashes. Arrange on a baking dish.
  • Trim the ends of asparagus and arrange on the same baking dish with zucchini.
  • Cut red onion into large piece and separate the layers.
  • Brush the marinade on the prepared zucchini, squashes and asparagus.
  • Add sliced red onion and cherry tomatoes into the bowl of marinade. Toss to combine. At this point you can refrigerate everything until ready to use, for 2-3 hours, or move right ahead.
  • Preheat the grill to medium high heat, oil the grates.
  • Meanwhile, thread tomatoes and red onion on skewers. You can use either metal or wooden skewers. (Make sure to soak the wooden skewers for at least 30 minutes prior.)
  • To grill, grill the vegetables until tender and lightly charred all over about 4 minutes for the asparagus; 7 minutes for zucchini, yellow squash and tomatoes.
  • Cut up grilled zucchini, squashes and asparagus into small pieces.
  • To serve, combine all the grilled veggies in the same bowl with leftover marinade. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add more freshly parsley, if desired.
