    Method

    1. For the Aïoli: In a bowl, combine the shallot, lemon juice, capers, mustard, and anchovy paste. Stir in the mayonnaise, yogurt, and olives. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
    2. For the Marinade: In a bowl, combine canola oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, salt and black pepper. Coat the vegetables evenly with the marinade. Let any excess drain completely away from the vegetables.
    3. Place the vegetables on a hot grill; cook on both sides (the time will vary depending upon the type of vegetable and the thickness of the cut), rotating once to create crosshatch marks, if desired.
    4. Turn the vegetables and complete the cooking on the second side.
    5. Serve the grilled vegetables with the Niçoise aïoli on the side.
     Note: Vary the vegetables depending on what's in season.
