Grilled Ratatouille

This classic French dish was meant for your grill. Summer vegetables are charred, chopped and dressed with olive oil, fresh herbs and garlic. Serve it as a side with grilled chicken or pork or slather it on grilled bread. Dovetailing Tip: Save some some veggies from tonight's meal to use day 4 in Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with Feta.

3 large beefsteak tomatoes, halved crosswise
2 medium zucchini
1 large eggplant
1 small red onion, halved lengthwise (through the root end)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, roughly torn
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
kosher salt

Prepare a grill for medium heat.

Put the tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant and onion on the grill and cover. Grill the tomatoes, turning occasionally, until lightly charred, 5 to 6 minutes. Grill the zucchini, eggplant and onion, turning every 5 minutes, until lightly charred and tender when poked with the tip of a small, sharp knife, 15 to 20 minutes.

When cool enough to handle, chop all of the vegetables except the onion into bite-size pieces and add to a medium bowl. Chop the onion finely and add to the bowl. Fold in the oil, basil, parsley, thyme, garlic and 1 tablespoon salt. Serve warm or at room temperature.
