Summertime…and the living is easy. And so is the cooking! Farmer’s market season is in full bloom and the stalls are overflowing with gorgeous produce.

Today’s recipe is a great way to add brightness and flavor to a simple side of grilled veggies. Please use whatever vegetables you have on hand. This recipe would work perfectly with eggplant, red peppers or onions.

Zucchini and asparagus are the stars in my recipe because I don’t know about you but everyone I know seems to have a friend or relative with too much zucchini on their hands. Sadly, I don’t know anyone with said problem so if you need me to take some produce off your plate, you know where to reach me.

Your fork is waiting.
