Pasta Salad With Vegetables

3/4 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Mayonnaise Dressing with Olive Oil, divided

1/3 cup sliced Kalamata or pitted ripe olives
1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves, chopped

Blend 1/4 cup mayonnaise with vinegar and pepper in medium bowl. Stir in vegetables.

Arrange vegetable mixture in grill pan or on foil on grill. Grill, stirring once, for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Cool.
