Grilled Veggies with Herb Feta Pesto

HerbFetaPesto

It’s hot! We are looking at a long stretch of 90+ degrees. The last thing I want to do is heat up the kitchen. It’s grillin’ time! I used carrots, potatoes, and corn, but use whatever vegetable you want. Since these need a little cooking first I just threw the all in a pot of boiling water. Potatoes first, then carrots, and corn last. I did not want to fully cook them, just did not want them to take forever on the grill.  The pesto is a variation on traditional. The feta cheese lightens it up and makes it creamy. Give it a try.
