Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill over medium high heat. While it’s preheating, make your dressing. In the bottom of the bowl where your salad will go, add the olive oil, balsamic, garlic, dijon, capers + salt and pepper. Whisk to combine and season to taste
  2. Dice your tomatoes and cucumber and add that to your dressing, season with more salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Set this mixture aside
  3. Prep your veggies to grill: slice the onion, zucchini, and bell pepper and remove the fibrous ends of the asparagus. Drain your artichokes and lay them out over several layers of paper towels. Dry well with more paper towels. Lay all your grilling veggies out across a baking sheet or 2, and drizzle with olive oil + season with salt and pepper. Rub the oil and seasonings into the veggies. I used a veggie grilling tray for the asparagus and artichokes so they wouldn’t fall through the grates of the grill
  4. Grill the veggies until they are tender but still have a bite. When cooled slightly, dice the veggies and add to the salad bowl with the tomato, cucumber, and dressing. Toss to combine
  5. For the croutons, heat the largest skillet you have over medium – medium high heat with plenty of olive oil. When hot, add your bread, season with salt and pepper, and toss occasionally until the bread is golden brown and crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Add more oil to the pan as needed. Season the toasted bread to taste
  6. When you’re ready to serve, toss the toasted bread with the rest of the salad, and you’re ready!
