Summertime Favourtie

A grilled vegetable skewer is one of the best ways I know to get kids to eat vegetables - especially when they’re marinated in a tasty herb vinaigrette. Just about any veggie will grill nicely, so use your imagination and get ready for empty plates.

Yield: Approximately 8 Skewers


8 wooden or metal skewers
1 or 2 Bell Peppers
1 zucchini or yellow squash
1 Red Onion
1 handful Cherry Tomatoes
1 handful Mushrooms
few generous splashes Italian Herb Vinaigrette


If you’re using wooden skewers pre-soak them in water for an hour or so, this will help keep them from burning on the grill.

Cut the vegetables into roughly equal-sized chunks then arrange as you wish on the skewers. Splash with the vinaigrette and let them marinate for an hour or so. Season with salt and pepper then grill until the vegetables are lightly caramelized and tender.
