to add to inda's post: thought id start a topic on ideas for everyones grill'n and chill'n this weekend, prehap family pasta salad recipe. oh and dont be afraid to post hunch punch/jungle juice recipes also though i could go on for days i think ill share one of my classics, sometimes forgotten, less important part of the meal...
take a aray of veggies. i usually do spanish onion, aspragus, green/red/yellow bell peppers, belgium endive (my favorite), portabello mushrooms, summer squash, zuccihni but almost any summer veggy will work.
cut all veggies to about finger size pieces. toss in extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, discard any extra oil to reduce chance of fiore.
over medium heat, place even layers of veggies over the grill. once veggies begin to soften and or grill marked on both sides remove from heat. roughly 5 minutes.
next drizzle your favorite balsamic vinegrette (vinegrette at room temp, so not to chill veg) over veggies, stir so that a light dressing coats the entire aray of veggies. veggies should be soft yet firm.
a great side dish for the ever famous, hot dogs, hamburgers, steak and bbq chicken!
happy 4th everyone
