A Grilling Fairy Tale

It’s hard to believe it’s officially Autumn, especially with the heat wave that many of us are feeling. I hear my friends in Atlanta are just as hot as it is here in Denver (still in the record-breaking upper 80s and low 90s). So in celebration, here’s one more Summer-inspired recipe that I’ve decided to tell in a whimsical way like a food fairy tale picture book!

De-Constructed Grilled Vegetable Salad

  • Any veggies or fruit that will go on the grill
  • Your favorite salad dressing or marinade
  • Your favorite cheese (mine is goat!)


Once upon a time I took carrots, green onion, turnip, mushrooms, whole romaine hearts, zucchini, bell pepper, and a banana pepper and decided they should all live together in food harmony in a warm “salad” type thing. I sliced everything up except the green onions and the romaine hearts which I grilled whole. Using a plastic bag, all those sliced veggies were introduced to my favorite salad dressing/marinade. I used the orignial Newman’s Own salad dressing and shook shook shook until all those veggies were evenly coated (but I didn’t put any dressing on my green onions or whole romaine hearts). Then everything went on the grill. And then everything went together in a bowl where I ate it (after adding a little bit of crumbled goat cheese)! And then me and my tummy lived happily ever after. The end.
