Grilled Bread Summer Salad
Ingredients: (Serves 4 as a main, or 6 to 8 as a side)
1 large zucchini
1 orange bell pepper
2 ears corn
1 box cherry tomatoes
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Italian dressing of choice
Salt and pepper to taste
Slice zucchini, bell pepper, and baguette in half lengthwise. Drizzle cut edges with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put on the grill along with the corn. Cook until vegetables are tender and bread is toasted. Allow to cool enough to handle, then cut veggies and bread into bite size pieces and slice corn kernels off the cob. Toss veggies, bread, tomatoes and chickpeas together in a medium sized bowl. Put a bed of salad greens on each plate and top with veggie mixture and sliced avocado. Drizzle with your favorite Italian dressing and enjoy!
