Both pretty and delicious, this grilled vegetable salad is the perfect meal-prep dish for your next summer get-together.
A garden salad is a classic, but it can also get a little boring. For your next summer get-together, instead of serving a standard salad why not switch it up with this delicious grilled vegetable salad? Bursting with flavourful veggies such as zucchini and sweet bell peppers, this salad looks almost as gorgeous as it tastes! My childhood summers were filled with gardening and BBQ’s, and now veggies on the grill with chicken or shrimp just screams summer vibes! We ate this salad all summer long, especially at the end of summer when all the vegetables were grown and ripe from the garden.
In my opinion, it all comes down to the veggies you pick. The thing that makes this grilled vegetable salad so flavourful is all of the natural juices from the peppers that pair perfectly with the olive and vinegar dressing and fresh herbs. You can buy roasted peppers from the jar at the store, but nothing truly compares to the fresh stuff right off the BBQ! If you don’t own a BBQ you can roast them right over a gas flame on the stovetop, or in a preheated broiler (as close as possible to the element), turning as needed to evenly cook. This salad really is the best way to end the summer season!
This grilled vegetable salad is also meal prep friendly – just pop it into an airtight container in the fridge and it will store for up to 3 days.

Recipe was full of flavor and easy to make – definitely adding to my permanent rotation. I roasted my peppers on the stove with a grill pan which took longer than I anticipated, so allow yourself extra time if you are grilling on a stove top vs. outdoor grill.
