You can experiment with different veggie combinations, just remember to cut your veggies to about the same thickness, so they cook evenly.
Grilled Zucchini, Squash and Asparagus
- 3 yellow squash about 1 pound total, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick rectangles
- 3 zucchini about 12 ounces total, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick rectangles
- 1 red onion medium cut into quarters
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Freshly ground sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 3 T balsamic vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 t chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
- 1 t chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1/2 t finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
Heat or prepare a grill to 400 to 450 degrees F.
Brush the zucchini and squash with olive oil to coat lightly, squeeze 1/2 the lemon juice over zucchini and squash, season with salt and pepper.
Toss asparagus with olive oil and lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper
Using either an oiled large grill pan or a large sheet of non-stick aluminum foil, grill the Zucchini, squash and red onion for about 5 minutes
Add asparagus and grill for an additional 4 minutes.
While the veggies cook, whisk 2 tablespoons of oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, parsley, basil, and rosemary in a small bowl to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Drizzle the herb vinaigrette over the vegetables.
Serve the vegetables, warm or at room temperature.
If you are experimenting with other vegetables you want to cook your veggies by size and density. Dense vegetable like carrots and potatoes take longer to cook. Approximate grilling times: Potatoes and carrots - 15 to 20 minutes Bell peppers and onions - 10 minutes Yellow squash, zucchini, eggplant, and mushrooms - 8 minutes Asparagus and green onions - 4 to 5 minutes

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.
Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
