grilled vegetable salad za'atar seasoning dressing victoria gourmet recipe

I created this colorful salad with the idea that the marinade for the grilled vegetables is also used to make the salad dressing. I always make double this recipe as this salad travels well making for a healthy lunch.

10 ounces baby spinach

Directions

1. In a large bowl add the onion, red bell pepper, olive oil and Za'atar seasoning. Toss to coat.

3. Place corn on the hot grill pan, turning as needed. Once cool enough to handle, cut the corn from the cob.
4. In individual bowls or plates, divide the spinach, grilled onions and peppers, corn, avocado, radishes, goat cheese and eggs between 4 bowls.
5. Whisk in the mustard and vinegar to the remaining Za'atar marinade. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over salad.
