Garden Salad with Tomatoes
and Grilled Vegetables

This is a great way to make use of leftover grilled vegetables. In fact, I always grill more than I need to make sure I have plenty the next day. Any type of vegetable will work well, but brilliant bell peppers, red onions, and yellow squash are especially colorful.
