Grilled Veggie Salad

Yesterday I shared how I make Grilled Veggie Medley and the fact that I always make two grill baskets full for two recipes, left-overs for lunch and a few for my eggs in the morning.  Here’s how I use some of the left-overs for the next night’s dinner and create a Grilled Veggie Salad including pasta, grilled tomatoes with basil and fresh mozzarella.  It’s amazing how a few additions can make a big difference in taste.
