Recipes Notes for Grilled Vegetable Platter with Lemon Feta Dip:

  • The dip is best made at least an hour ahead and refrigerated, so the flavors have time to meld and mellow. If tasted immediately after making, it will be quite tart from the yogurt. That tartness fades significantly after an hour, allowing the lemon-feta flavors to shine through.
  • Use your favorite in season vegetables in this dish. We love assorted peppers and squash, but you can also grill tomatoes, mushrooms, sugar snap peas, asparagus – whatever you choose!

Ingredients

Ingredients for the Lemon-Feta Dip

  • 1 c. feta crumbles
  • 1 c. plain yogurt
  • 2 Tbs. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

Ingredients for the Vegetables:

  • 1/3 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 c. balsamic vinegar
  • 6 c. assorted vegetables eg baby bell peppers, shishito peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, button mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

Instructions

Make the Dip:

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth (or desired consistency). Refrigerate at least an hour. Stir before serving.

Prepare the Vegetables:

  1. Clean vegetables. Cut squash into 1/2 inch rounds or spears. Remove mushroom stems. If desired, remove stems from baby bell peppers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. Whisk together olive oil and balsamic vinegar and pour over prepared vegetables. Allow to marinate for at least 15 minutes while the grill preheats.

  3. While vegetables marinate, preheat grill to medium heat. When hot, add vegetables either directly onto grill (such as with larger cuts - like peppers or squash spears) or in a grill basket. Cook for 3-5 minutes before flipping. Cook another 3-5 minutes. Remove vegetables that are ready, and continue cooking - checking and flipping every 3-5 minutes - until vegetables reach desired doneness.

  4. Serve hot, with chilled lemon-feta dip.
