I loved this! I do agree with the first reviewer that grilled veggies are a stand out on their own....but I disagree in a 2 star rating....I thought this was really very good. I used leftover Simple Grilled Vegetables from this site...asparagus. zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, and mushrooms. This dish was perfect for leftovers. I roughly chopped the veggies and then made the quick dressing and tossed and chilled until dinner. I did decrease the dressing to 1 tblspn of olive oil, 2 tblspns red wine vinegar, 1 tablspn of dijon, the garlic, salt and cracked pepper. Great flavors and I would definately make again. Thanks!
This wasn't terrible, but we didn't really enjoy it. The tastes of grilled veggies are so wonderful on their own, the vinaigrette really masked and overwhelmed their flavors.
Grilled veggies are the best. Rather than make a salad - I serve the dressing as a dip. 8 tablespoons of oil for 6 servings seems excessive so I also cut down on the oil. I like to serve with crumbled gorgonzola. Also grill some corn, pineapple, tomatoes, green onions, eggplantr, ... and make this a dinner.
The veggies are wonderful on their own. I served them without the dressing and with balsamic vinegar as a dipping sauce. They were a huge hit! I think next time, I will half some cherry tomatoes and grill them along with a few julienne strips of jalapenos. Salt is completely unnecessary to me.
I enjoyed this recipe, I kept to the dressing as written, and it was excellent. Since this dish can be served at room temperature, I took whole wheat rotini and added it to bowl with the bite size pieces of vegetables to make a pasta salad type thing. I'll make it again for sure!!
I think you can use this as a dressing or a dip, that is how good it is! I served this at a barbeque with some very picky eaters and it was a huge hit. I even subsituted Dijon mustard with regular mustard because that was all I had and everyone love it! If you can appeal to the masses, you have a hit on your hands!
Perfect and easy!
