Instructions
  1. In small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, oil, parsley, basil and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Place veggies in large zip-top bag and add balsamic mixture; close bag and turn a few times to coat contents. Let marinate at room temperature for approximately 30 minutes.
  2. Skewer together mushrooms. Coat grates with oil and heat grill to medium-high — approximately 400 F degrees.
  3. Drain balsamic marinade off vegetables and reserve (never reserve marinade on raw meat, but on vegetables it is fine)
  4. Grill veggies for 6 to 8 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Vegetables will be done when they are becoming tender (a little “crunch” is desired and have golden brown grate marks. Let vegetables cool on cutting board for several minutes and then cut down into bite sized pieces.
  5. In small sauce pan, bring balsamic mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, let simmer for a couple minutes to reduce a volume a bit.
  6. Add spinach to serving platter and top with grilled vegetables and balsamic dressing (made from the marinade). Toss with tongs and serve warm — or make the vegetables in advance, chill and serve as a cold salad

  1. My mouth is watering- I love grilled fruit and veggies. Right now my favorite is peaches– love how the sugar in the fruit caramelizes and gives it that crispy edge. gah! love

    • Lisa, you are killing me with the peaches!!! Did apricots recently, which were honestly a little lackluster fresh, but they were the bomb right off the grill!

  2. OMG drool! This looks AMAZING! Thank you for linking up with us and sharing this awesome recipe. Adding to the menu for this week!

  3. Oh my gosh those veggies look perfect! One of my most favorite ways to eat them! And that veggie sandwich picture…right up my alley!

    • I am now doubling every veggie grilling recipe so I can have leftovers for sammies, pasta, etc — normally we just gobble everything up right away!

  4. Oooh those veggies look too good! Agreed that nothing beats a big juicy steak on the grill – but these veggies look like they would be the perfect side to that :)

    • Jess, today in the produce section, I waffled back and forth with fresh pineapple slices for the grill tonight, and ended up going with something else. not regretting :-(
