I found this recipe for Grilled Garden Salad from Kraft quite awhile ago but completely forgot about it until the other day when I was going through my piles (and piles) of recipes that I’ve torn out of magazines! I figured I’d better hurry up and try it since summer is on it’s way out the door and fresh veggies won’t be so fresh pretty soon.
So I made it yesterday (Labor Day) to go with some ribs and it was good! And really pretty too! Here is my version…
Ingredients: 1 large squash, 1 large zucchini, 2 ears fresh corn or 1 can corn, 2 small tomatoes, 6 large basil leaves, 1/4 cup zesty Italian salad dressing, 1 clove garlic, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
Chop zucchini and squash lengthwise into three sections.
Just as I was going to put these on the grill, the skies opened up! Dang!
Luckily I have this fabulous grill pan from Pampered Chef!! I heated about 1 Tbsp oil in the pan.
And grilled the zucchini until tender, turning once.
While the zucchini and squash are cooking, chop the tomatoes.
You can also chop the basil.
Remove the zucchini and squash from the grill and chop.
The original recipe calls for fresh corn which is also grilled. I felt like taking the easy route and using canned corn. I threw it in the grill pan after the squash to give it a little grilled flavor.
Place corn, squash and zucchini in a large serving bowl.
Add tomatoes and basil.
Mix dressing, garlic (Love this Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic! Makes my life easy!) and lemon juice.
Pour over vegetables.
Toss to combine all ingredients.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese!
Gently toss again. Now it’s ready to serve!
