It’s officially summer—and grill season! If you haven’t tried grilling veggies, it’s time to start. Throwing everything from root vegetables to lettuce onto the grill sweetens and enhances both flavors and textures—trust us, they’ll give any salad a run for its money.
This particular dish from Melissa Urban, the co-founder and CEO of Whole 30, is not only Whole30-approved, but vegan and gluten-free—meaning it should please everyone at this season’s family barbecues. Note: If one of your guests has a nut-allergy, swap the dressing with a bottled Caesar version.
