Salad Board with grilled veggies

Everyone loves to make their own creation, which is why we love to serve a board. There are no right or wrong ways to make a board, and as I always say, start with what you have. What is in the fridge? What’s stocked in the pantry? Get creative and make your board a work of art.

Use the 20-inch big board

Also, if you’re serving a meal for 4 people, start with the 20-inch board. It’s the perfect size!

Get all the board sizes at the bottom of this post. And read all the benefits as to why you need a big board (with a lip, so the food stays on the board) opposed to flat boards (really messy).

Grilling in September!

We’re still grilling here in Oregon, so let’s get started!

Always start by using a wire brush on your grill, to thoroughly clean the grates to ensure the vegetables and bread do not stick.

For the corn …

Coat the corn with the mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill, turning and grilling until brown and slightly charred.

For the veggies ..

Toss zucchini, green beans, and baby bell peppers in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place zucchini on the grates in a single layer. Flip the zucchini after charred on each side.

Green beans …

Toss the green beans in a grill basket every few minutes until charred and sizzling.

Baby bell grilling …

Grill the baby bell peppers directly on the grates or in the basket. The skin of the peppers can char and almost become black. Once the peppers have cooled, most of the skin can be peeled off, leaving a deliciously sweet and tender flesh. You can pre-peel the peppers, or leave the skin on for the board.

I always tell my husband, when the last guests are gone and I’m ready to crash, I’m so glad we did it.

It’s so worth the effort. What a great time we had getting to know our neighbors (or friends).

Grilled BLT Salad Board

Made on the 20-inch BIG BOARD

Ingredients

  • ½ loaf ciabatta, sliced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 10-12 baby bell peppers
  • 6 oz haricot verts or green beans, blanched
  • 8 strips bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced
  • ¾ c cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1-2 medium zucchinis, cut diagonally into 1 1/2’’ slices
  • 4 ears corn, halved and parboiled
  • ½ c mayonaise
  • 1 head butter leaf lettuce
  • ½ c balsamic vinaigrette
  • Mint to garnish

Instructions

Grill the veggies:

  • Preheat grill to high heat. Use a wire brush to thoroughly clean the grates, to ensure the vegetables and bread do not stick. Reduce heat to medium-high.
  • Coat the corn with the mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill, turning every 3-4 minutes, or until brown and slightly charred. Set aside and keep warm.
  • Toss zucchini, green beans, and baby bell peppers in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place zucchini on the grates in a single layer. Flip the zucchini after 3-4 minutes, or until charred, and cook an additional 2-4 minutes. Once cooked to your liking, remove from heat and keep warm. Toss the green beans in a grill basket every few minutes until charred and sizzling—4-6 minutes. Keep warm.
  • Grill the baby bell peppers directly on the grates or in the basket, and allow to cook—4-6 minutes each side. The skin of the peppers can char and almost become black. Once the peppers have cooled, most of the skin can be peeled off, leaving a deliciously sweet and tender flesh. You can pre-peel the peppers, or leave the skin on for the board.

Arrange the board:

  • Crumble the bacon and put in a bowl; set on the board.
  • Arrange the lettuce on the board with the toasted bread.
  • Set down the avocado and the salad dressing (in a small bowl).
  • Fill in open areas with grilled veggies and serve! Guests can make their own sandwich or BLT salad!
