With warm-sunny weather finally here, it's the perfect time to dig into delicious fresh salads. Nina Lesser-Goldsmith from Healthy Living Market has a versatile summer salad that involves NO lettuce!
Grilled Vegetable Salad with Feta and Lemon
2 Zucchini 1 large red onion 2 red peppers 1 bunch asparagus 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 2 Tbsp good balsamic vinegar or Saba Zest of one lemon Juice of 1/2 lemon 4 oz fresh feta, crumbled 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
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, peel the stalks of the asparagus with a vegetable peeler and trim off the woody ends. You can use any seasonal vegetable here (fennel, summer squash, ramps, mushrooms, 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!
