Grilled Veggies with Mustard Vinaigrette
I make this healthy and inviting side dish whenever friends come over for a cookout. The honeyed vinaigrette lets the veggies shine. —Shelly Graver, Lansdale, Pennsylvania

This is a really good and easy recipe - love all the varieties of veggies you can use - and the sauce is outstanding.

I made 1/2 recipe. I substituted a yellow pepper for the squash. Definite keeper.
