1/2 red pepper, halved lengthwise
1/2 yellow pepper, halved lengthwise
3 small zucchini, sliced lengthwise
6 carrots, julienned
18 spears asparagus, cut in thirds
salt and pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

• Preheat barbecue on HIGH.
• To prepare the marinade: In a medium bowl, whisk together garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, herbs, salt and pepper. Add the onion and peppers to marinade and toss. Remove from marinade and grill over MEDIUM heat for 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Brush the zucchini slices with marinade and grill 2-3 minutes per side until lightly browned. Reserve any remaining marinade.
