Parchment Packet Mediterranean Vegetables

This quick and easy side-dish is bursting with Mediterranean flavors thanks to our Greek Olive Vinaigrette.  Baking these in the parchment paper packets makes clean-up super easy too.

Ingredients

3 cups cherry tomatoes, washed and stems removed
2 cups zucchini, cut into half circles
1 medium red onion, large dice
1 medium red bell pepper, large dice
3/4 cup Sutter Buttes Greek Olive Vinaigrette (Shake well before pouring)
1/2 cup feta crumbles
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chopped Fresh Parsley or Basil – for garnish

Directions

Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place prepared vegetables in large bowl and toss with Greek Olive Vinaigrette, add salt and pepper to taste, set aside.  Cut two sheets of parchment paper into 24″ by 12″ pieces and fold each in half short ways. Lay each sheet out flat.  Pour half of the vegetable mixture into the center, near the fold of one of the parchment sheets.  Fold paper over vegetables, starting in one corner, fold edges toward the center sealing the packet. Repeat for second parchment sheet.  Place packets on baking sheet and bake in pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes.  Remove from oven and cut packets open carefully as steam will have built up.  Sprinkle each serving with feta crumbles and fresh herbs. Serve in packets for easy clean-up or plate with couscous and your favorite grilled protein.

Note: Packets can be cooked on a gas grill as well.
