If you’re celebrating Labor Day Weekend with one final summertime BBQ, here’s the perfect dish to make on the grill: Marinated Veggie Kabobs. All you’ll need is organic veggies, your favorite salad dressing/marinade and bamboo skewers which you can find right here at The Corner.
2 cups mushrooms
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 green bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 red onion, cut into chunks
1 zucchini, sliced into thick rounds
1 yellow summer squash, sliced into thick rounds
Marinate vegetables in dressing/marinade for 15 minutes- 2 hours. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before using. Thread vegetables alternately on skewers. Brush with additional dressing/marinade if necessary. Grill for 3 minutes, turn vegetables over, brushing with extra dressing/marinade. Grill for another 3-4 minutes until done. Enjoy!
