Spring Salad with Grilled Veggies
This Spring we’ve been able to use a gas grill for the first time (we were given it late last fall). It has been so amazing!! The above picture was taken after we decided on the spot that we wanted grilled veggies on our salad, not raw. In no time the grill was ready and the veggies cooking.
Neither my husband or I are zucchini fans, but we LOVED the grilled zucchini on the salad. The flavor really meshed well with the romaine lettuce, grilled red onion, and EVOO Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing.
Since there are mushrooms and peppers on sale this week, I’m sure they would be a great addition to the salad!
Grocery Savings Tip: Making your leftovers a full meal with veggies
Another thing we have had recently grilled is corn on the cob. Sometimes, we were are trying to stretch our leftovers into a full meal, it’s nice to add fresh veggies or fruit to the mix. This week I made Butternut Squash & Parsnip Baked Pasta. When we were eating the leftovers, I suggested we grilled the corn on the cob as the side. This really complemented the meal and filled us up! Plus, we were using produce we had bought on sale.
