These veggies skewers are packed with good-for-you nutrients for fewer than 130 calories per serving. I served them up this weekend along with barbecued chicken, hot dogs, and my Israeli-Style Salad.
Serves: 4 (2 skewers per serving)
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ¾ medium red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 button mushrooms, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 wooden skewers
  1. Place all vegetables in a large bowl and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour marinade over vegetables; mix to evenly coat. Cover vegetable bowl and let marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Soak wooden skewers in water for 10-15 minutes. Preheat grill. Thread the vegetables in any order desired. Each skewer should have 2 pieces each of green peppers, yellow pepper, onion, tomato and mushroom. Grill skewers for 10-15 minutes, turning several times, until vegetables are tender and edges are slightly browned.
