Broiled Veggies

1 green pepper
4-6 asparagus
1 large Roma tomato
Mozzarella or hallouni cheese
Jumbo shrimp

For the Marinade:
6 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 T dried tarragon leaves
1 clove garlic, crushed
salt and pepper

1.  Make the marinade; put all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir well to mix.
2.  Cover and chill for 1-4 hours.
3.  Just before cooking, preheat the broiler for 5 minutes on high.
4.  Reduce the heat to medium-high.  Broil about 4 inches from heat, for about 10 minutes, turning them twice and brushing with more marinade.

*This was delicious.  The cheese and shrimp I liked better before they were broiled (the shrimp were from a bag of frozen cooked shrimp). The mozzarella melted.  Other veggies that would taste good might include cherry tomatoes, zucchini or winter squash.  I also used some Italian dressing in place of the olive oil.
