Grandpa’s Grilled Vegetables in Foil

Grandpa’s Grilled Vegetables in Foil My dad would make the most wonderful grilled vegetables that he pulled straight from his garden. Every summer I crave these, so I figured out how he made them, and I added a few personal touches. You can use some or all of these vegetables, and you can add some of your own, but the thing that brings it all together and makes it special are the beets.
