The Ivy Copycat Grilled Vegetable Salad with Lime Vinaigrette
serves 2 as an entree
for the dressing
Juice of 1-2 limes
match the lime juice with an equal part of olive oil so it is 50/50.
Add about 1 TBS each of balsamic vinegar (or other vinegar) and agave
Season to taste with S&P.
Combine & taste. Tweak to suite your palate.
for the salad
Your choice of greens – or a mixture (arugula, romaine, butter lettuce, watercress, field greens – your call)
1 yellow squash
2 ears fresh corn – in the husks
1 bunch asparagus – tough bottoms trimmed
1 red bell pepper – seeded
1/2 cucumber – diced
1 handful cherry tomatoes – haved
3-4 radishes – chopped
1/4 small red onion – diced
1 avocado – chopped
OPTONAL – chopped herbs (basil or cilantro), protein (chickpeas, black beans, vegan chicken or any other protein you desire)
Make the dressing while the veggies are grilling.
Slice the zucchini & squash in 1/4 inch thick slices & grill until softened & there are grill marks – turning a few times. Do the same with the red pepper & asparagus. Set aside. Grill the corn in the husks until blackened on the outside. Cool & throw the husks away then cut the corn from the cobs.
Now – just assemble the salad the way you would any other. If there are going to be leftover veggies – do not dress them. They will stay fresher in the fridge undressed.
Serve & enjoy!!!
