Grilled Vegetable Salad

We’ll still have summer for quite some time here in Southern California as our September and October are sometimes our hottest months. But I thought this was an appropriate salad to post on this seemingly last day of summer…. while vegetable gardens are bursting with produce that is begging to be used up. And while the grills are still out and ready to fire up. Adapted from the latest issue of Cooking Light, this is another of my favorite salads of the summer: Grilled Vegetable Salad.
Grilled Vegetable Salad1
Have you seen the new Cooking Light magazine? They’ve improved the magazine with a style that feels reminiscent of Food and Wine. I had let my CL subscription lapse because I didn’t care much for the way the magazine was printed. The new layout is clean and user-friendly, with recipes all on one page and easier to clip. There’s a great Quick & Easy section too.  I actually enjoyed reading it at the gym.

This salad screamed summer at me, so I decided to give it a go. It was easy to prepare… just grilling the veggies and mixing with a light white wine vinaigrette. I ate it for lunch with a hunk of sourdough bread and it was perfectly delightful. I had leftovers the next day that were just as good.

I’m adding this recipe to my list of favorite salads. It’s light (91 calories for 3/4 cup), low fat (5 g. fat), low carb (6 net carbs) and only 3 WW points.

    …and if there are any leftovers, the not-so-light way to eat them the next day is on a toasted roll or mixed with pasta! :)

    Gee, I used to read that magazine years ago. I guess I will give it a try again. This salad looks like my kind of food!

    I also love the new CL layout! This salad was marked when I did my first read-through of the magazine, so it’s good to hear from you that it’s so tasty! I know I can trust your reviews of recipes!

    We grill veggies all summer to eat on the side, but I’ve never added olives. This looks totally delicious! Thanks for the update on the new CL mag. I will have to check it out again.

    I LOVE this! We’ve been roasting a big batch of veggies every weekend, and using them up during the week in all sorts of ways. But I haven’t tried them in a salad yet. Better do it soon!

    That looks fantastic! I just received an issue of the new CL mag, but haven’t had much chance to look at it yet. Seems like the improvements will be great though.

    Oh I am so glad to hear that CL changed their format! I didn’t subscribe to the magazine because I hated the layout (even though I love the recipes), but now I definitely need to check it out! This is a gorgeous salad!
