Grilled mixed veggies.. so easy and so good.

You can certainly tell when the weather gets warmer around here. More of the cooking is moved outside. We made this dish this past weekend.. it is on the top of the make it again list!

1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt (I used Kosher salt)
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon dried basil
3 large ears fresh corn, cut into 3-inch pieces
2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 medium yellow summer squash, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 medium sweet onion, sliced
1 large green pepper, diced
10 cherry tomatoes
1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) whole mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup butter divided

1. In a large bowl, combine the oil, salt, parsley and basil. Add the vegetables and toss to coat. Place on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 28 in. x 18 in.). Dot with butter. Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly.
2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-13 minutes on each side or until corn is tender.
3. Yield: 8 servings.

Since we didn't have 8 people around, and we were just two that evening, I made the following adjustments (the corn was also standing in as our starch for the meal):
2 ears of corn, 1 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, 12 tiny portabellas left whole, 1/2 large bell pepper, 1/2 medium onion. 
I left everything else the same and oooh was it ever so tasty!  I hope you enjoy.

This looks so good. We're not quite up to outdoor grilling (but I do sneak out there to do a steak all winter), but when we do, grilled veggies will be at the top of the list.
