One of my favorite summer side dishes is grilled vegetables. You just can’t beat the fresh taste of delicious summer produce combined with the smoky, slightly charred taste from grilling. While you can grill almost any veggies, I find it easiest to use a grill basket and choose veggies that cook in about the same amount of time. That way you don’t have to worry about the timing of each vegetable or losing half the veggies through the grill grates. You can also use heavy duty aluminum foil but I find I get the best flavor with a basket. Usually I like to season my veggies with olive oil, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning but any spice mix will work.
