Grilled Summer Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas and Basil

Serves 4 to 6
Time 30 min
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.
