Let’s get cooking! Heat your grill to medium high.

Grill those juicy sausages, turning frequently, for about 8 to 10 minutes until cooked through. Remove to serving platter and tent with foil to seal in the heat.

Toss your vegetables with 1 tablespoon oil and season with garlic salt and pepper and grill them for 4-5 minutes until you get that delicious char. Brush the corn with oil or butter and grill for about 4 minutes, until they begin to char as well. Remove to a serving platter to get ready for feasting.

Sprinkle the cooked sausages and grilled vegetables with scallions and fresh herbs for that fresh taste and serve with Dijon mustard.
