It’s amazing how delicious seasonal vegetables can be with a splash of olive oil and a dash of sea salt when they are well caramelized. Accompany these with some freshly baked bread and a Mediterranean dip like hummus and you have a gorgeous tribute to the season.

Ingredients

Preparation

Combine olive oil, basil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss vegetables in this mixture to coat well. Add a little extra olive oil if you need it.

Preheat a gas grill to high or build a bed of hot coals. Grill the vegetables, turning once or twice, until grill marks appear and the color pops. Don’t overcook them, as they will continue to cook slightly after you have removed them from the grill. Arrange the vegetables on a platter and serve with any of the additional items below. Garnish with wedges of lemon and whole sprigs of basil.

Additional garnish:

  • Mixed Mediterranean olives
  • Your favorite hummus or garlic sauce
  • Roasted garlic
  • Mt. Townsend Seastack Cheese or your favorite cheese
