one of the best things about the weekend is grilling out fresh vegetables to serve as a side dish along with chicken or fish. one of my favorite mixtures is always, sliced onions, yellow bell peppers, asparagus and zucchini slices. these sliced vegetables with a drizzle of olive oil and a few fresh herbs take only minutes to soften and cook on the grill.
the herbs from the garden that added to the taste of the vegetables were basil and parsley. i also seasoned them with ground black pepper, a twist of salt over the top, and my favorite all around seasoning from Mary’s Kitchen Port in Traverse City. Her seasoning blend is a great mix of flavors that I often use for chicken, fish, and vegetables.
Along with these vegetables, I served grilled chicken with the same seasonings to match the taste. We also had some breadsticks with chive butter. This was another simple grilled meal for a summer evening to enjoy on the deck.
