Grilled Summer Vegetables

With summer vegetables at their peak, it's THE time to enjoy them every day. Just because you're grilling is no excuse not in incorporate summer's bounty at mealtime. If you don't have a grill basket, please purchase one as soon as possible. When preparing the vegetables, try to cut them very close in size so they will cook uniformly. This recipe may not even qualify as a recipe! I'll tell you the veggies I had on hand and the simple way to prepare them for the grill.

2 medium yellow squash, ends trimmed and cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
2 medium zucchini, ends trimmed and cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1 red onion, cut into quarters and then cut in half again
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1 inch cubes
1 T. olive oil
Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Prepare all the vegetables and place in grill basket. When ready to place on the grill, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the vegetables.

Place on preheated grill (medium high heat) and allow to cook for 10 minutes. Using tongs, toss vegetables and continue to cook until vegetables begin to char. When they have cooked to the texture you want, remove from heat (carefully because the basket will be hot!) and serve immediately.
