Absolutely! Here is the recipe for Barbecued Mediterranean Vegetable Plate of mixed greens:
1 zucchini, cut longwise
1 eggplant, cut into adjusts
1 red chime pepper, cultivated and quartered
1 yellow chime pepper, cultivated and quartered
1 red onion, cut into thick rings
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and dark pepper, to taste
1 cup cherry tomatoes, split
1/2 cup disintegrated feta cheddar
New basil leaves, for embellish
Preheat your barbecue to medium-high intensity.
In a huge bowl, join the cut zucchini, eggplant, red and yellow chime peppers, and red onion. Shower olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the vegetables, then, at that point, add minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and dark pepper. Throw everything together until the vegetables are uniformly covered with the marinade.
Barbecue the marinated vegetables on the preheated barbecue. Contingent upon your barbecue and the thickness of the vegetables, it might require around 3-5 minutes for each side for the zucchini and eggplant, and 4-6 minutes for every side for the ringer peppers and onions. Barbecue until they have decent barbecue stamps and are delicate yet not excessively delicate.
When the vegetables are barbecued, eliminate them from the barbecue and let them cool marginally.
Cleave the barbecued vegetables into reduced down pieces and move them back to the huge bowl.
Add the split cherry tomatoes to the bowl with the barbecued vegetables.
Disintegrate the feta cheddar over the serving of mixed greens.
Throw every one of the fixings together delicately to join and allow the flavors to merge.
Taste the plate of mixed greens and change the flavoring with more salt and pepper if necessary.
Decorate the Barbecued Mediterranean Vegetable Plate of mixed greens with new basil leaves for an eruption of newness and fragrance.
Harvesting the Ingredients:
The star of this vibrant dish is the medley of summer vegetables—zucchini, eggplant, red and yellow bell peppers, and red onions—each carefully selected to bring its unique texture and taste to the salad. The zucchini, sliced longwise, offers a tender and succulent bite, while the eggplant, cut into rounds, provides a creamy and indulgent element. The bell peppers, with their radiant colors, bring a sweet and juicy component, while the red onion, sliced into thick rings, adds a touch of pungency and complexity. This ensemble of vegetables is the heart and soul of the Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Salad, setting the stage for a culinary adventure.
Marinating the Melody:
The vegetables undergo a transformation as they are marinated in a luscious blend of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. The marinade enhances the natural flavors of the vegetables, infusing them with a delightful smokiness and herbaceous charm. As the vegetables soak in the marinade, they become a harmonious symphony of tastes, preparing to take center stage in this delectable salad.
A Ballet on the Grill:
Once marinated, the vegetables are placed on the preheated grill, where they sizzle and char, creating the signature smoky flavors that define Mediterranean cuisine.

Each side-by-side flip on the grill is a performance in culinary artistry, showcasing the delicate balance between cooking time and preserving the vegetables’ natural freshness.
The Grand Finale:
After their pas de deux on the grill, the vegetables cool slightly before being chopped into bite-sized pieces and returning to the stage—the large bowl. Alongside the grilled ensemble, cherry tomatoes join the performance, contributing bursts of juiciness and color. A sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese adds a luxurious and creamy note, elevating the salad to an unforgettable crescendo of flavors.
