Grilled Veggie Skewers Recipe
We love our smoked meats as much as the next grilla. But you don’t just have to be an herbivore to love grilled vegetables. Especially when they’re smoked well and dripping in dressing. Add the pop of perfectly seasoned rub and suddenly grilled meat just got a new best friend.
- 2 zucchinis, cut into 1-inch slices
- 2 yellow squash, cut into 1-inch slices
- ½-lb whole fresh mushrooms
- 1 red onion, cut into chunks
- 12 cherry tomatoes
- 1 fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
- ½ C Italian dressing
- 2 TB Grilla AP Rub
- 8 skewers
If using wooden skewers soak in water for 15min.
Combine Italian dressing and rub in a zip-top bag large enough to fit your skewers with veggies and shake to combine.
Place your veggies on the prepared skewers and then into the zip-top bag. Gently shake the bag to coat the veggies. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
Preheat Grilla to 300 degrees.
Remove skewers from bag and place them on the Grilla Grill. Use remaining dressing mixture to baste the veggies as they cook. Turn the veggies every 10 minutes until you are happy with color.
Remove from grill and serve.
