Warm Grilled Vegetable Salad

warm grilled vegetable salad

A warm grilled vegetable salad is always a delicious treat. I like to pair this with a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio and then enjoy the whole meal al fresco. It’s perfect for warm evenings and grilling vegetables chars them lightly and brings out their amazing flavor.
