Grilled Vegetable Salad With Oregano Dressing

"Adapted from the Australian Womens Weekly. A favourite dish of mine is veggies cooked on the barbecue, the vegetables listed can of course be varied, I am sure that any combination would taste just as good."

    We loved this. Simple, delicious and a great-looking, too. I made with what I had on hand -- various peppers, zucchini and corn on the cob -- and served with grilled salmon. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting!

    Wonderful recipe ... the pumpkin is a little unusual -- it tends to be a fall vegetable here in the US, but it adds a carmelized sweetness to the grilled vegetables that is refrehsing and a surprise. Clearly, the veggies can be altered to fit whatever your garden or grocery store has available. I added some corn on the cob, then shucked the kernels free. The dressing is simple to make and also adds another, mild layer of flavor. Definitely a keeper, thanks, Sarah!, for posting.

    Delightful grilled veggies; loved the dressing. Use yellow squash, green onions, red and green peppers and the capers. Put into foil packets and on the grill for 18 minutes, turning once. YUM! Made for Sarah's Cook-a-thon and the Grilling Event in Cooking Photos.

    Delicious and very easy to make. I used zucchini, yellow summer squash, red, green & orange peppers and mushrooms. Very good. Next time I may increase the vinegar a tad, but it is good as written. Thanks for posting.

    This is just devine!! Due to the weather I cooked this inside on my cast iron grill. I used only red capsicum and added some sweet potato. A great side for any meats....or a vegetarian main even.Mmmmm Yum!
