Grilled Vegetable Platter - How to assemble the most AWESOME vegetable platter! No more sad-looking veggies! This is so easy and perfect for entertaining!

​If we rewinded (rewounded???) to my childhood, I would have probably fled from this platter.

Out of sheer terror.

Running away as my life depended on it.

But now.

Well, you couldn’t pay me to separate myself from this.

This platter and I have become besties, really.

And that vinaigrette.


I’ve basically been drowning myself in it.

I mean.

Times have seriously changed.

    Looks great!! Do you happen to know how many calories are in each serving? Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Hi Jackie! Nutritional information is provided only for select recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, we recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”). Hope that helps!

  6. This looks scrumptious. It made me so hungry! haha

  7. Please give directions for baking in oven. Thanks; looks delicious!

  8. Beautiful platter, and thanks for the tip on the grill basket. I had never heard of that either.

  9. Question about grilling the carrots. Do they soften up a bit after grilling or do they stay crunchy?  I’ve noticed that these take the longest to cook when I roast them in the oven. 

  10. Looks so delicious! Which grill basket did you use? (Would love to see a photo or a link to a similar one, as grill baskets is new to me)

  11. Instead of grilling how long would you recommend putting in the oven ? Thanks ! 

  12. This is an uncommon recipe. Hope to try this on this week. Thank you very much for sharing this with us.

  13. Grilled Veggies is something most of us are familiar but beauty of this veggie platter is the way it has been gorgeously presented. Each veggie appears to say – Eat me, If veggies are so nicely plated and palced on the platter, I am sure healthy eating will no longer be boring. Next time when I am going to grill my veggies, I will present it like this. Great idea.

  14. Any reason this vinaigrette cannot be made and refrigerated to use on other things?

  15. That is one epic platter. I want it in my belly!!

  16. Gorgeous!

  17. Had a similar platter served with hummus at a restaurant in Phoenix. Loved it. Your presentation is beautiful.

  18. What in heavens name is a grill basket 
    I never haard of it

    • A grill basket is used when grilling delicate foods. The food is held between hinged wire panels, keeping the food from falling apart as it is grilled. The basket is placed on the grill grate and when one side is done the basket is flipped over so the second side can be grilled. The basket has a handle attached that is used to turn the food. There are several types of baskets available for cooking different foods. You can find one on amazon or kitchen supplies stores.

  19. This vegetable platter looks delicious. I would try this recipe this weekend. Thanks for sharing
