Confetti Herbed Vegetables

Yield :  4 servings


  • 8 to 10 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1-½ cups fresh corn kernels, cut from cob
  • 1 sweet red pepper, cut into thin julienne strips
  • ½ medium-size green pepper, cut into thin julienne strips
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1-½ tablespoons olive oil or butter, cut into small pieces


  • Combine all ingredients, except oil or butter, in a large bowl; toss gently to mix. Divide vegetable mixture in half. Place each half in center of a 12- x 12-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Dot each with olive oil or butter.
  • Bring corners of foil together to form a pyramid; twist to seal. Grill foil packets over medium-hot coals (350º to 375º) 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Serve immediately.
This delicious herb and vegetable side dish cooks on the grill, making it a great addition to any cookout. Plus, the foil packet makes clean-up easy!
