Grilled Veggies A La Manda

The marinade for these grilled veggies is awesome! I sometimes also add a skewer (or two)of quartered onions because I LOVE grilled onions! I use the marinade to dip the veggies in when eating. I can make a meal out of this! I grill the vegetables a little longer than 5 min., because I like mine blackened. Prep. time includes minimum refrigeration time.

This was delicious. I used an assortment of veggies, marinated them 2 hours in a ziploc bag, drained them, and then cooked in a stainless grill basket on the grill.

This was a little too vinegary for my tastes. I'm not sure if 6 hrs was too long to marinate the veggies or if it was personal taste. I did add Siracha hot sauce and I loved the spiciness the veggies but otherwise followed the recipe as written.
