  • 3   
    medium zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 1   
    medium red onion, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 8   ounces 
    fresh mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1/2  cup 
    bottled Italian salad dressing
To broil:

Place vegetables on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Brush with some of the salad dressing. Broil 3 inches from heat for 12 minutes or until crisp-tender and lightly browned, turning and brushing once with remaining dressing. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
To grill:

Brush zucchini and/or squash, onion slices, and mushrooms with some of the salad dressing. Grill the vegetables on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium to medium-hot coals for 12 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning and brushing once with dressing. For an indoor electric grill: Heat about 8 minutes or until crisp-tender and lightly browned, turning and brushing once with remaining salad dressing. (You may have to grill half the vegetables at a time.)
  • For a zestier dressing, stir 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel, 2 tablespoons lemon juice,1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper into Italian salad dressing before brushing on veggies.
