Sounds yummy and healthy too! I think marinading the grilled veggies in a freezer bag with olive oil and the rest of ingredients for the veggies for about an hour is what I will try before grilling them. Also, I will probably make double the mayo/pesto mixture. Adapted from Cooking Light, August 2008. Posted for ZWT 6.
