Grilled Vegetable Salad

There is something about grilled vegetables that just screams summer. To me, grilling vegetables is one of the best ways to prepare them. It just seems to enhance the flavors. Plus, it is certainly a simple preparation. Who doesn’t like a meal that is simple and comes together quickly? A few nights ago, I decided to [...]
