This Grilled Veggie Salad with Tahini Dressing is the perfect simple dinner to celebrate delicious veggies. A bit of couscous and some salad greens pull it together.

Ingredients

For the dressing:

Instructions

  1. Cook the Harvest Grains Blend or alternate grain according to package directions.
  2. While the grains cook, wash the veggies. Cut the bell pepper into roughly 6 chunks and slice the zucchini into ¼” strips. Peel the onion and slice into ¼” rounds, keeping all the layers together. Rinse the asparagus and tomatoes.
  3. Place a griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray generously with oil and let the griddle heat up for a minute. Neatly place all the veggies except the asparagus on the griddle, overlapping them as little as possible.
  4. Cook about 7 minutes, until lightly charred. Flip each piece individually then add the whole asparagus. Cook another 7 minutes or so, tossing the asparagus every now and then, until everything is finished cooking. The bell peppers will still be a bit crunchy; you can continue to cook them as you like.
  5. As the veggies cook, mix together the ingredients for the dressing with a fork.
  6. Place the salad greens on a plate and top with a few spoonfuls of the grains. Top with the cooked veggies and finish with a drizzle of the dressing. Enjoy!

Notes

– Use 1 1/4 cups of another dry grain such as rice or farro if you prefer.
