Grilled Vegetables with Sesame Dressing


Here in Southern Ontario we have just enjoyed a glorious Victoria Day Long Weekend. For us it was a long weekend of spending time with friends, gardening and grilling. When the weather is beautiful I like to spend as much time outside as possible so my kitchen gets a little neglected. Baking slows to a crawl unless it is rainy and all our meals are cooked on the BBQ.

We spent Saturday evening at a friends house playing Bocce Ball and sitting outside on their deck while the night sky came to life with the most impressive neighbourhood firework display I have ever seen! It seems as though every family within a 5 km radius was setting them off. It was fantastic and we were right in the middle of it all.

This lovely little side dish made a nice accompaniment to the family’s Italian sausage and my favourite salmon sausage. The dish would also be great as a main with some grilled avocado.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
