Grilled Peppers and Squash

We're finally ready to get our grill out. I can't wait to get some vegetables on the heat. This is my favorite combination but you can do any kind you like. I like to use skewers but we also sometimes use a vegetable grill basket which prevents the smaller pieces from falling through.

2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
2 T. chopped basil

4 medium yellow squash, cut inot 1/2 in slices
4 medium zucchini, cut inot 1/2 in slices
1 medium sweet red pepper, seeded and cut into pieces
1 medium green pepper, seeded and cut into pieces
6 fresh mushrooms, clean and remove stems (save for soups)
1 large sweet onion, cut into large pieces

Combine garlic,basil, olive oil, and vinegar in a shallow dish or pan.

Add vegetables, and allow to marinate for 1-2 hours.

Spray cold grill rack with grilling oil spray if you are placing veggies directly on it.
Heat grill to low. Place vegetables on grill and cook for 10 minutes or until done, turning occasionally. Serve immediately.

YIELD: 4 servings
