DON’T FORGET THE OTHER PART…
This part is as much fun as the salmon part! My family and I have been doing this for many years now and we don’t ever get tired of it! Part of the secret to staying healthy and maintaining your weight… is finding recipes for veggies that you don’t get tired of!
Bell peppers (use all colours for an appealing look!)
Start by breaking off the ends of the asparagus. I do mean “breaking off” and not cutting, since you might end up with some of the woody part of the asparagus if you cut at the wrong place. Just bend the spear and where it breaks is where it should. Keep the top half and throw away the bottom half! Don’t worry if it looks like you’re wasting… the part you are discarding isn’t good anyway and is mostly responsible for half the population not liking asparagus (remember the taste or texture question above? Most people who dislike asparagus do so because they cut the ends off and then try to eat the woody part!!!) I’m not kidding!!!
Next, cut the ends off the zucchinis and cut once lengthwise!
Then, cut the peppers in halves and remove the core and seeds.
In a marinating container or Ziplock bag put the asparagus, zucchini and peppers. Add a mixture of 1/4 c. of olive oil and 1/4 c. of Walden Farms Balsamic Dressing. Let the vegetables marinate about 30 minutes.
The idea of leaving the vegetables in large pieces makes it easier to turn on the grill, prevents overcooking as well as falling through the cracks! Zucchinis and peppers that have cooked too long become mushy and nobody likes that!!!
Once the vegetables are grilled, put them on the cutting board and make smaller pieces for serving. You can leave the asparagus whole as it looks great on the plate!
This is a quick dinner that tastes amazing. It brings together a number of flavours that are pleasing to the palate! Hopefully, it becomes one of your favourites too!
Enjoy a great dinner! I look forward to helping you use the leftover in a awesome salad tomorrow! Have a great day!
