Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 2 Portobello mushrooms, gills & stem removed
  • 4 zucchini (yellow and green), cut into ½” slices
  • 4 sweet peppers (all colors), quartered
  • 1 onion, cut into ½” slices
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
Relish
  • 3 cups tomatoes, cored & seeded
  • ¼ cup Italian parsley, minced
  • 3 Tbsp dill pickles, minced
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp capers, drained
  • 1 Tbsp canned green chilies, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Toss all the veggies with some oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay on grill in a single layer, turning once char marks appear. Because the veggies have different cooking times, start with the peppers and onions. Once they start to soften add the zucchini and mushrooms. That way everything will be done at the same time.
  2. For the relish, combine all ingredients until thoroughly mixed. If you can, make this an hour ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend and the mixture to warm to room temperature.
  3. Serve the relish over the grilled veggies, or on the side.
Notes
Other veggies you can grill: eggplant, fennel
