Grilled Ratatouille Salad

May 18, 2015

Grilled Ratatouille Salad

Ratatouille is a French side dish located with Mediterranean vegetables. I decided to turn this healthy side into a salad with grilled vegetables and quinoa with this Grilled Ratatouille Salad recipe. This gluten-free and vegan recipe is perfect for a weeknight summer dinner or weekend lunch. I am actually serving this alongside grilled steaks this Memorial Day weekend. It’s three of my favorite things: healthy, flavorful and beautiful!

Yield: 4 servings
2 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
2 yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced

1 small eggplant, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 cups balsamic vinaigrette, divided
4 cups arugula
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 Crumbled goat cheese, chopped fresh basil (optional)

2. In a resalable bag combine peppers, zucchini, eggplant, and onion. Drizzle vegetables with 11/2 cups balsamic vinaigrette; seal and marinate in the refrigerate 10 minutes up to 4 hours.
