Total time: 1 hour plus 30 minutes chilling | Serves 6


  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup oil

Step 1Combine the thyme, basil, rosemary and vinegar in a bowl or jar. Slowly beat in the oil to blend well. Makes 1 1/2 cups.


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 (1-pound) piece banana squash
  • 1/2 eggplant
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • Vinaigrette to taste

Step 1Heat the broiler.

Step 2Whisk together the oil, thyme, basil, oregano, garlic and black pepper.

Step 3Slice the zucchini, squash, eggplant and red onion into 3/4-inch-thick slices and place them on a broiling pan. Brush them with the marinade and broil until lightly browned, 2 minutes on each side. (You can also grill the vegetable slices over high heat 2 minutes a side; keep an eye on them so they don't burn.)

Step 4Place the red and green peppers about 4 inches beneath the broiler and broil until their skin begins to blister, turning so all sides char, 12 to 15 minutes. Place the peppers in a resealable plastic bag to steam 10 minutes, then peel them when they're cool enough to handle.

Step 5Dice the zucchini, squash, eggplant, onion and bell peppers into 3/4-inch squares. Drizzle 1/2 cup of the Vinaigrette over the vegetables and toss to coat well. Chill the vegetables at least 30 minutes. Store any remaining Vinaigrette in refrigerator for future use in salads.
