I came home from the grocery store loaded with vegetables and fruits. Something about this great summer weather. I cut up some strawberries, pineapple and apple so the girls could easily pack some fruit salad for lunches. The pineapple is just perfect! I kept nibbling on pieces as I worked.
I also brought home a red pepper, mushrooms, yellow crookneck squash, green zucchini, cabbage, jicama, and bean sprouts. Not sure what it will all show up in yet but for dinner tonight I marinated and then skewered and grilled:
red bell pepper
yellow crookneck squash
For a marinade, I used a bottled Italian dressing I had opened. Had I not had anything opened I would have done something with olive oil, vinegar (maybe balsamic) and various herbs. There’s a recipe up on FoodSaver.com that looks good. As it was, I just cut the vegetables up into chunks, leaving the mushrooms whole, and marinated a few hours in the vinaigrette I had.
