Grilled Vegetable Salad with Goat cheese

We bought a grill recently, and decided to grill something on a Sunday evening. We did not have any chicken or paneer to marinate, and grill. I came up with the idea of grilling vegetables, mixing them with balsamic vinaigrette and adding goat cheese and pine nuts to it! DELISHH!! Its one of the healthiest and best salads I have ever had!

Here is the recipe:


10-12 lettuce leaves
3-4 green onion sprigs
1 zuchinni cut into 1/2 inch slices(slanted)
1 red bell pepper  cut in half(for grilling)
1 red onion chopped into big rough pieces
8 asparagus sprigs with the ends cut
olive oil to coat the veggies
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette(recipe on blog)
4 tablespoons goat cheese
1/3 cup toasted pine nuts


Coat all the vegetables lightly with olive oil. Grill the vegetables and keep turning them until you see them charred. At this point remove the vegetables. Let it cool down. Lettuce leaves, red bell pepper should be cut into thin strips. Asparagus should be cut into 11/2 inch pieces, same with the spring onions. Put all the grilled veggies in a bowl. Add the vinaigrette and pine nuts and toss it to coat well.

Add salt and pepper if required. Plate the salads into 2 plates(that is the qty). Sprinkle with crumbled goat cheese.

EAT your heart away! ;)
