Gay Cook’s Grilled Harvest Vegetables with Fresh Herbs and Goat Cheese

As autumn begins to bring cooler weather, it’s still time to enjoy the abundant harvest. This recipe can be used with different vegetable combinations can be served room temperature or even a delicious salad for eating outdoors near the barbecue. The addition of goat cheese adds great flavour to the salad. It’s a fun recipe when all the family gathers for Thanksgiving.
