  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix artichoke hearts, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, olives, garlic, capers, honey and red pepper flakes. Divide evenly among sheets of foil.
  • 3
    Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 4
    Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cook 4 to 6 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Remove packs from grill; cut large X across top of each pack. Carefully fold back foil, and garnish with mozzarella and basil. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  • 5
    To make in oven, place packs on cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Carefully fold back foil, and garnish with mozzarella and basil. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Expert Tips

  • These foil packs also make a great appetizer. Just throw some sliced ciabatta or baguette on the grill beside them for fun do-it-yourself bruschetta.
  • For the prettiest presentation, cut tomatoes in half through the stem so it’s less noticeable.
