  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 2 summer squash, halved lengthwise
  • 1 red onion, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 medium eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed



  1. Before you start the heat, fold a papertowl and dab it with oil and rub it on the grill so that the veggies dont stick.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high (400-450°F).
  3. Combine parsley, mint, lemon juice, garlic, crushed red pepper, 6 tablespoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  4. Brush bell peppers, zucchini, squash, onion, eggplant and asparagus with the remaining 1/4 cup oil; sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Place the peppers, zucchini, squash, onion and eggplant on the oiled rack; grill, covered, until the vegetables are tender but still hold their shape, 3 to 5 minutes per side, adding the asparagus halfway through. Grill the asparagus until tender and grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Transfer the grilled vegetables to a serving platter. Serve with the parsley-mint sauce.
