Nothing quite tastes better than a platter of grilled vegetables during the summer. The char from the grill and mixture of flavors make this dish light and delicious, not to mention super simple to throw together. The great thing about this recipe is that if you have a favorite vegetable that is not on the ingredient list, you could easily add it into the mix, the more the merrier.
The asparagus I found at my local store were very tiny and ended up cooking a lot faster than the zucchinis, carrots, and onions. I would recommend marinating these separately and putting them on the grill last. If you have one, I would also use a vegetable tray on the grill in order not to lose any asparagus. They shrivel up quite a bit while cooking and quite a few fell down the grill grate.
Overall these veggies ended up being a healthy and delicious addition to our meal. They made an especially tasty addition to the BBQ Grilled Chicken and Baked Beans. Not only that but the flavors intensified overnight and they tasted even better the next day!
