Grilled Zucchini & Potato Salad

We had a windy,cloudy and rainy weekend few days back, thank god we have an electric griller at home to change this nasty weather mood to cheer up with some grilled veggies and meats. This grilled salad goes for both zucchini and potatoes, which i simply marinated with pepper powder,salt,dry herbs and olive oil before they goes for grilling. Apart from it,this salad doesnt even need any special dressing or dip to enjoy. Somehow my kids enjoyed this grilled salad with a handful of roasted peanuts and mayonnaise.

A simple salad, with the zero caloric veggie zucchini and potato makes a wonderful combination for this kind of grilled salad. You can also enjoy this salad as an accompaniment with some grilled meats and bread. If you like grilled veggies, dont forget to make this salad. In case if you dont like or find zucchini,you can replace them with any kind of veggies that suits prefectly for grilling.Sending to my event CWS-Peanuts hosted by me and to my own event Healthy Diet-Healthy Salads by Archana of The Mad Scientist's Kitchen.
