Grilled vegetables with chipotle-lime sauce

Oh. My. Gosh. This vinaigrette sauce kicks up the flavor of vegetables so much that I even willingly ate zucchini…and I never willingly eat zucchini! We had an all-grilled meal the other night, consisting of sausage, buns that were toasted on the grill, and a wonderful mixture of vegetables that were later doused in this great sauce.

Leave the sausage out and have a vegetarian meal if you’d prefer! With or without the meat, the whole combo can be ready in thirty minutes, easily. If you’ve done once a week food preparation, and your veggies are already cut, your meal can be ready in about 20 minutes!

Chipotle-Lime Vinaigrette Sauce

1/2 c olive oil
1/4 c lime juice (2 limes)
1 T chipotle peppers (in adobo sauce is fine), chopped fine
1 clove of garlic, smashed
2 t ground cumin
Salt and pepper

Whisk ingredients together really well, or use a blender. Drizzle over grilled or stir fried vegetables.

Grilled Zucchini

Peel zucchini and cut into lengthwise “planks”, about 1/4 inch thick. Rub with olive oil, add salt and pepper, and cook directly on the grill over medium heat.
