Ingredients

  • 2 large red bell peppers stemmed, seeded, and quartered
  • 2 medium zucchini cut diagonally into 1/2" slices
  • 2 medium yellow squash cut diagonally into 1/2" slices
  • 1 medium eggplant sliced into 1/2-inch thick circles
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese optional but recommended

Balsamic Vinaigrette:

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar*
  • 1 medium clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Heat grill to high.
  • While grill is heating, make vinaigrette. Whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, honey, mustard and oregano. Whisk to emulsify. Taste and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Alternatively, you can add all ingredients to a cruet or mason jar and shake to mix.
  • In a large bowl or on baking sheet, drizzle vegetables with olive oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again. 
  • Place vegetables on grill and cook for 3 -4 minutes per side or until nicely charred and softened.
  • Alternatively, you can broil the vegetables. Spread vegetables evenly on baking sheet and broil for a few minutes on each side until nicely charred and softened. You may have to do this in batches. Time to broil may varies depending on oven, but should be about 3 minutes. Check after a few minutes.
  • Transfer charred grilled vegetables onto baking sheet or platter. 
  • Sprinkle vegetables with crumbled feta cheese. Drizzle vinaigrette over feta and vegetables. Save unused vinaigrette for later use. Serve immediately or at room temperature.

Notes

*Cooking time varies depending if using grill or broiler. If using broiler, place oven rack closest to broiler.
