Brush the vegetables with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and thyme. Grill or broil the peppers and onions over the cooler part of the grill for about 4 minutes per side, or until tender. Grill or broil the yellow squash and zucchini over the hotter part of the grill for about 2 minutes per side, or until almost tender. Grill the cherry tomatoes over the hotter part for about 1 minute, or until hot. Transfer the vegetables to a platter, toss gently to combine and serve.
