DIRECTIONS

CUT THE VEGETABLES INTO LARGE QUARTERS SO YOU CAN EASILY GRILL THEM. For the romaine you just take off the outer leaves. For the avocado you simply cut it in ½ so you can grill it face down. After you have everything cut up you can place them into large freezer bags and drizzle the marinade over them. Depending on how many vegetables you have you may need several bags. You can let the veggies marinate anywhere from 1 hr-1 day.

Grill everything up! Cut everything into bite size pieces and mix it all together! Enjoy!

Every time I make this it is quite a crowd pleaser and people are amazed at the flavor that comes out when you grill vegetables. Grill up any vegetables you like, it is certainly not limited to this list. Get creative and make some color.
