Grilled Veggie Salad with Tofu Green Goddess Dressing

The creamy tofu dressing was a perfect complement to the earthy, albeit slightly charred, grilled vegetables.  Certainly use any vegetables you want for this salad and have a great time experimenting.  I happen to like the raw carrots and tomatoes in contrast to the grilled zucchini, and eggplant, but you could grill it all and serve over grilled radicchio as another serving suggestion.  I hope you find this salad as versatile as I do.  If I keep eating this well I might just get a goddess like figure myself!  Yum!
