Enjoy the summer harvest with this delicious salad. Freshly grated parmesan provides the best flavor but experiment with other cheeses like feta, gruyère or Manchego, if you like.
Ingredients: 
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, quartered
  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered
  • 1 small red onion, cut into thick rings
  • 2 zucchini, thickly sliced lengthwise
  • 2 yellow squash, thickly sliced lengthwise
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas), rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method: 
Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking, oiling the grill grates as needed. Working in batches, grill peppers, onions, zucchini and squash, flipping once, until just charred in parts and tender, 6 to 8 minutes total; transfer to a large platter as done. Set aside to let cool before cutting into bite-size pieces.

In a large bowl, combine grilled vegetables, garlic, vinegar, oil, basil, chickpeas, salt and pepper. Garnish with parmesan and serve immediately or cover and chill until ready to serve.
