My Italian-style grilled veggies have a wonderful sweet and sour dressing. Best of all, I pick the fresh veggies and herbs from my garden. —Laura Mast, Defiance, Ohio

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients until blended. Refrigerate until serving.
  2. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, yellow pepper and tomatoes. Add oil, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to a grill wok or an open grill basket; place on grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat 10-12 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

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