Vegetable skewers are a great way to showcase the best of your summer bounty. Whether your vegetables are from your own garden, from the local farmer’s market, or they were on sale at your grocery store, grilled vegetables are my favorite way to accomplish crisp, tender vegetables.
Skewers are such an easy meal! Just skewer, grill and eat. You can get creative with marinades or keep it simple with a little drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. You can feature these as an entree or as a side dish. Aren’t they beautiful?
If you decide to marinate your vegetables, my favorite base marinade is olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, a citrus of some kind and any herbs I have on hand. Just add everything into a large ziplock bag, toss and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Then skewer the veggies onto metal or soaked wooden skewers (alternating your veggies) and grill. This is a nice alternative for the vegetarians in your life at your next BBQ.
