HELP! What Goes With Grilled Veggies?

I am going to a dinner party where the host is serving Grilled Vegetables as the main dish. She has asked me to bring a side salad. I am thinking about a mixture of greens and fresh herbs -- but that is as far as I have gotten. Anyone have a good recipe for a salad they think would pair well with Grilled Veggies like eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms and asparagus?

      Ha--see my post. I was wondering if the salads could include cheese, etc.

        HAHA! yes wincountrygirl we are of like minds!! but don't think that is happening at this dinner party :(

      2. Is this an all-vegan meal, do you know, lobstagal?

          nope not all vegan -- but she just has a lot of vegetables she wants to grill, I guess.

        2. Without knowing if the veggies are going to be seasoned a certain way, for example, a jerk marinade, an Italian herb blend, a Cajun blend, etc., pretty much any salad without meat will pair with the grilled veggies.

            Yeah, I was thinking something summery like cucumber, feta and watermelon, if cheese is allowed.

            1. Could it be a grain salad or an orzo salad? Either of these would marry nicely with grilled vegetables.
