Mediterranean Grilled Vegetables

If you can't find baby vegetables, use larger ones and cut into 2-inch pieces. Prep tip: If you have time, salt the eggplant and squash; leave in a colander for 30 minutes to draw out extra moisture, then rinse and pat dry. Serving tip: Great with Grilled Pita Bread.

  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a glass jar; shake well. (This can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 4 days.)
  2. Place all vegetables in a large glass dish or plastic container with lid. Pour marinade over all; toss well to coat. Let sit 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high. Remove vegetables from marinade and place on grill; use a grilling basket for smaller pieces. Grill until tender, 5-10 minutes per side. Transfer to a large platter. Garnish with fresh basil.
