Grilled Vegetable Platter Recipe

The best of summer in one dish! These pretty veggies are meant for entertaining. Grilling brings out their natural sweetness, and the easy marinade really kicks up the flavor. —Heidi Hall, North St. Paul, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash salt
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 small carrots, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, cut into 1-inch strips
  • 1 medium yellow summer squash, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into wedges


  • 1. In a small bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients. Place 3 tablespoons marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Add vegetables; seal bag and turn to coat. Marinate 1-1/2 hours at room temperature.
  • 2. Transfer vegetables to a grilling grid; place grid on grill rack. Grill vegetables, covered, over medium heat 8-12 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally.
  • 3. Place vegetables on a large serving plate. Drizzle with remaining marinade. Yield: 6 servings.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: If you do not have a grilling grid, use a disposable foil pan. Poke holes in the bottom of the pan with a meat fork to allow liquid to drain.

"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."

"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."

"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."
