- 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.
