It is finally warm enough in Chicago to grill on a regular basis. Tonight we made hamburgers, a medley of grilled vegetables and a radish salad. Believe it or not, my 4 and 6 year old kids love the radish salad!
Now that fresh herbs are available for a few months, I throw them in everything. Not only do they look and smell divine, they taste great too. If you don’t have a garden, I hope you will plant a few herb plants in a pot in your windowsill. They make spring and summer cooking taste even better.
Fresh Grilled Vegetable and Herb Medley
One yellow or red pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
One zuchini or yellow squash, chopped
1/4 cup fresh herbs, chopped (I used basil, rosemary, oregano, marjoram)
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp olive oil
Toss cut up vegetables in oil and salt. Place vegetables in a grill pan over medium grill heat. Stir occasionally and grill until tender (approximately 10 minutes). Toss in herbs and serve warm.
1 cup sliced radishes
A splash of your favorite salad dressing (we use a strawberry vinagrette)
Toss the radishes with your favorite dressing. Radishes are a beautiful color and good source of Vitamin C, folate, magnesium and potassium.
