Add grilled vegetables to mixture in bowl. Toss lightly, adjust seasoning as needed and serve immediately.

Tips

When barbecue season is over, the vegetables can be grilled in the oven at 450 °F (230 °C). This recipe can easily be prepared ahead of time.Cool cooked vegetables and refrigerate. Serve salad cold.
