It’s attending to be my favourite time of 12 months for produce. Peppers, zucchini, and corn are coming into season, and tomatoes and peaches are simply across the nook. Round right here, it’s been too sizzling to activate the oven, so we’ve been making the most of our summer season bounty by making kabobs with attractive grilled greens.
To make kabobs, you may grill nearly any vegetable that may match on a skewer, however for my part, peppers, summer season squash, onions, mushrooms, and corn are the perfect greens to grill. Lower into similar-sized items, all of them cook dinner at about the identical price. And once you slide them off the skewer, you get a mouthwatering mixture of textures and flavors – the mushrooms are meaty, the corn is crisp, the squash is comfortable, and the peppers and onions are properly candy. Drizzled in a punchy sauce, they change into a scrumptious summer season meal that you could make in about 20 minutes from begin to end.

What to Serve with Grilled Greens
Grilled greens are considered one of my favourite summer season cookout sides.

These skewers would even be a yummy facet with BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches, Oyster Mushroom Po’ Boys, or a hearty salad like my couscous, orzo, pasta, or potato salad.
Alternatively, make them the principle meal! Drizzle the completed grilled greens with tangy Greek salad dressing and serve them alongside plenty of pita and tzatziki sauce. Not within the temper for tzatziki? Pesto, cilantro lime dressing, or chipotle sauce would all be nice sauces to go together with your kabobs.
