Reviews for Grilled Vegetable Platter
"Very light; changing the way I do barbeques..."
"One of my favorite marinated veggie recipes. I've used it over and over just as is or with other veggies too. My family likes mushrooms marinated and grilled with this recipe."
"Perfection!!! This is absolutely the best vegetable dish for the grill. Loved the marinade. Can't wait to make again and to make for company!"
"Vegetables never tasted so good!"
"SimpleFoods: for the oven roast it at 400 F.Loved this recipe. Grilled on my gas BBQ and the sweet and tangy flavours came through deliciously!"
"I haven't made this yet but we enjoy roasted veggies in the oven. I''m wondering if those who posted that they use this recipe for roasting could state what temp they use? From my experience, different veggies require different temps. Of course, I want to add others that aren't mentioned in the recipe - mushrooms, snow peas, and more. They will all make a difference and some will require closer watching. Suggestions about this? This will be a winner for us, I know - we much prefer roasted veggies over any other method, including grilling."
"This was a good but not great dish. I thought the squash was too mushy but that may been my fault for cutting them too thin (will cut 1/2 inch or thicker next time). The asparagus and carrots were great. Next time I may only use those two vegetables."
"I love this and I am not a healthy food eater. Whatever is left can be either reheated or I prefer it cold. My mom is grill phobic so when I made it I just zapped the veggies in the microwave checking every two minutes for desired tenderness. My sister made the recipe but put the veggies in the oven. Both of us had a different small amount other vegetables which we each added, snowpeas, green beans and beets.Great however you alter it."
"(Sorry for the typos on my review.)"
"My mom is strictly a meat and potatoes type of person. At 98 she can be without thre holier than thou health gestapo getting on her case. she says she actually ate the fairly large portion I put on her pate and fed half her top sirloin to the dog. This is exceptionally good."
"My favorite food is grilled veggies but I don't usually marinate then. I'll just toss them a few minutes before cooing them. I made this Monday night but I used apple cider vinegar in place because I didn't have balsamic and added onion powder. Delish!! :) Always marinating now! haha"
"I added more veggies than the recipe called for and added zucchini. I also doubled the marinade to ensure adequate coverage. This was delicious. We grilled burgers and had this side dish and that was plenty. I think you could add mushrooms, broccoli, celery and a few other assorted veggies and it'd taste great as well. One of the easiest side dishes to make, short of opening a can of corn - lol. Can't wait to make it again."
"The marinade for this recipe is fantastic! I used whatever veggies I had in my garden; summer squash, zucchini, green beans, green pepper and onions. It wasn't as colorful but it sure was delicious (and easy)! I will be making this often over the course of the summer. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe."
"Simple, easy and delicious. You can add any vegetable you like. A hit with all family members."
"Tried this the other night,, my husband who doesn't usually like veggies,, thought it was great!! Will make it again!!"
"I'll be making this again. It is colorful and tastes great."
"This recipe won compliments all around when I made it for the 4th of July. The colors help make it look so appetizing. A few other bits of advice - use MEDIUM heat or the honey in the dressing will burn, and use tongs that are very flexible and able to grasp the small veggies - my BBQ tongs were too stiff and I lost some veggies into the coals. Also, I would prefer a dressing that is a little more tangy and light. Nonetheless, this was a very tasty recipe and its presentation is excellent."
"We used a disposable pan and found it difficult to flip the veggies properly. Next time, we're buying an actual roaster and adding a little more salt and pepper as the veggies roast."
"Absolutely fantastic. We didn't have a grill grid so we used a disposable grill pan instead. I will double everything next time."
"this is my go to recipe for all our family meals that come from the grill. so easy and so good."
"Very easy to put together and absolutely delicious!!!"
"Delicious, this the recipe I wanted. I tried before with Olive oil and parmesan, but this is divine, thanks!"
"Excellent recipe - the marinade really makes it!"
"We love grilled veggies, this is one of the best grilled veggie recipes I have tried!! So very good! Is a definate keeper!"
"I made these vegetables last night and they were delicious! My husband and I both loved them! I let them marinade a little longer than it said, and didn't put any extra marinade on after they were finished because they tasted so good just the way they were. I will be making this all summer on the grill and during the winter in the oven. What a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables! Can't wait to have company so I can make these for them!"
"This is exactly how I make summer vegetables. I always make plenty to last for family and guests. I also add mushrooms & green long peppers. I've never added balsamic vinegar. Next time I make this fantastic veggie platter I'll add the balsamic vinegar for a change."
"We love this grilled veggie platter...I added snow peas and sweet potato rounds in place of the squash ....it's so easy and it's so good.Janet, Ontario"
"I have put this in my "keeper" recipe box! Delicious! My family loved it - we used the vegetables we had on hand. Will be a great recipe to use when company comes."
"This is my kind of recipe, tasty, low fat, low in calories, and filling, thanks for a great recipemarbar"
"Amazingly good. Serve with a chunk of good goat cheese and you have a winning keeper."
"This recipe was awesome! Vegetables were flavorful. We didn't have some of the vegetables called for in the recipe, so we used what we had on hand...mushrooms, red onions, orange/yellow peppers, green beans. Fantastic with any combo!"
"My family loved this recipe. The seasonings enhanced the flavor of the fresh vegetables. I will make this recipe often."
"We have some vegetables we don't care for, so I played with the recipe. I substituted green beans for the asparagus and zucchini for the yellow squash. Smelled wonderful while grilling and tasted even better! Two thumbs up!!!!"
