    Directions

    01

    In small bowl, combine oil, garlic, rosemary, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Whisk to blend. Drizzle over prepared vegetables and rub in.

    Grease barbecue grill and preheat to medium-high. Arrange vegetables in grill basket. Alternatively, place tomatoes and onion in basket while gently placing asparagus, zucchini, and carrots crosswise directly on grill, being careful to prevent vegetables from falling through grate. Reduce heat to medium and close lid. Grill for 3 minutes.

    Stir vegetables in grill basket and, with large, wide spatula, gently turn vegetables on grate. Close lid and continue to grill vegetables for 5 more minutes, or until grilled as you like. Time might vary, depending on intensity of barbecue temperature.

    Remove veggies and arrange on large heated platter. Sprinkle with capers, lightly dust with fresh parsley and basil, and drizzle with fresh lemon juice, if desired.
