A versatile summer salad

Posted: Updated:

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!
