|Majestic UnRecipe Grilled Salad - Photo by Wasabi Prime|
This is certainly the most UnRecipe that every did UnRecipe. It's a grilled salad where literally everything was just tossed on the grill and one hoped for the best. And I mean EVERYTHING -- veggies, fruit, even cheese. And I threw in some croutons made from homemade bread during the final toss. Why? Because it was there. I should call this Mt. Everest Salad.

For example, this salad of everything cooked on a grill included: onions, slightly underripe (but firm) apricots, garlic scapes, radishes, and corn. It also had slabs of paneer cheese -- I love adding it to warm salads, it's got such a great meat-like texture, it sears beautifully, and it won't turn into a melty mess like 99.99999% other cheeses that will permanently fuse themselves to your grill. And a grilled salad like this doesn't take much prep -- kick the tires, light the grill-fires, lightly toss whatever you're grilling in some salt, pepper and vegetable oil, and let the sear happen. I tend to place the items that take longer to grill towards the back, where you get more heat -- onion chunks and thick slices of radish go there, just grill until soft -- and more delicate things like fruit, cheese, and thin scapes were towards the middle /front part. If you have one of those grill baskets, those are handy for small things, and you can cut your veggies to bite-size pieces and grill faster. I don't have one of those things, so I just threw caution to the wind, left most things whole or nearly-whole, lost a few radish halves, but everything turned out right in the end.
