  • Wood Skewers


  • 4 red onion medium
  • 4 zucchini medium sliced
  • 2 red bell pepper
  • 2 yellow bell pepper
  • 2 orange bell pepper
  • 2 green bell pepper
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar

Garlic Herb Sauce

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 3 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
  • salt
  • black pepper


  • Soak approximately 8-12 wooden skewers in water for at least 15-30 minutes. The total number of skewers will vary depending on several factors, such as the size of each vegetable, the size of your vegetable pieces, etc.
  • Prepare the vegetables for the skewers. For each red onion, first peel, then slice in half. Chop each half into thirds, as if you were cutting a pizza (6 total pieces from one onion). Seed and chop each bell pepper into approximately 1-inch by 1-inch pieces. Finally, chop the zucchini into rounds.
  • Prepare the Garlic Herb Sauce- in a medium bowl whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, parsley, cilantro, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  • Skewer the vegetables by alternating between red onion, zucchini, and the different colored bell pepper. Brush skewers with a light layer of olive oil.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Once the grill is hot, add skewers and grill for approximately 5-8 minutes per side, or until vegetables are just softening and browning around the edges.
  • Remove from heat, brush with garlic herb sauce and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette, if desired. Enjoy!


  • If using wooden skewers, you will need to soak them in water for at least 15-30 minutes before threading vegetables.
