Grilled Summer Vegetables with Herbed Cheese

The recipe for grilled summer vegetables with herbed cheese came to me when I was driving home from the farmer’s market. I love to shop from local farmers and producers. This time at the market there were so many beautiful summer vegetables. I filled my bag with fresh produce, and I wanted to create new recipes right away.

If you know me, you know how much I love feta cheese. I grew up eating it and I crave it every single day. I literally add feta to every meal. That is why the first thing I thought about when I bought these fresh summer vegetables was to grill them and crumble some feta on top. Then I remembered that I have so many fresh herbs in the backyard garden that would go great with the veggies. So, to top them off I cut a few fresh sprigs and I chopped them finely in a bowl. To the same bowl I added some homemade yogurt and crumbled some feta and stirred everything very well. That is how simple is to make the herbed cheese for this recipe. The result was so good that I had to share it with you.

Like most of my recipes this one is not only delicious but very nutritious too. I highly recommend eating fruit and vegetables that are in season. They will provide maximum flavor and nutrition. The vegetables in this recipe are seasoned with heart healthy olive oil, some salt and grilled. They are rich in vitamins, fiber and antioxidants. Getting full on vegetables will help your immune system and prevent diseases. The feta will increase your calcium intake, which strengthens your bones, teeth and nails.
