For Antipasto:

Juustoleipa, with origins in Finland and Sweden, means "bread cheese." The cheese becomes soft and "squeaky" when heated, but it will hold its shape. Enjoy this salad as a vegetarian entrée or side dish.

For dressing:

  1. Combine the balsamic vinegar and honey in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

For antipasto:

  1. Grease grill grate. Toss zucchini, yellow summer squash, red pepper and asparagus with olive oil in a large, sealed plastic bag until coated. Transfer vegetables to lightly greased grill grid; place on grill grate. Grill vegetables, covered, over medium heat for 8-12 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally. Remove from grill; keep warm.
  2. Grill juustoleipa, covered, for 5-10 minutes on each side or until slightly crispy on the outside and warmed through. Remove from grill. Slice into 1/2-inch strips. Arrange on serving platter with vegetables; drizzle with reserved dressing. Serve immediately.
