Grilled Vegetable Skewers

Happy Foodie Friday! Nothing is more refreshing than a skewer of bright summer vegetables hot off of the grill. This colorful spread paired perfectly with the Maple Citrus Salmon. The skewers were relatively quick to make and yielded a tasty addition to the meal. If you want to change up your vegetables used, you could easily use tomatoes, cauliflower, mushrooms, or anything else you prefer.

It takes awhile to cut up all of the vegetables so if you prefer prepping ahead of time, slice everything up a day or two before grilling and keep in your fridge. The step after placing the vegetables on skewers is coating in olive oil, however you can substitute an Italian or balsamic vinaigrette to punch up the flavor. These skewers are such a hit that whenever we are grilling I always prep a few as they are a tasty addition to any meal.
