Anytime we grill, my sweet hubby is always in charge of the meat and I do the side dishes.   These grilled vegetable kabobs are my way for him to do both, Ha!   No, seriously we both love to cook so this gives us time to enjoy meal preparation together.  And need I say, it’s such a healthy side dish.

The sweetness of the veggies emerge as they char and the smoke from the grill just adds all the flavor they need.    There are so many variations for Grilled Veggie Kabobs with a wide range of selection, asparagus, eggplant, Brussel sprouts, cherry tomatoes and corn are just a few more to try.   I just added a little salt and pepper to these so the natural flavors came through but feel free to add your favorite seasonings.

We made chicken and steak kabobs for supper tonight. I love how beautiful they look--not to mention delicious. We added big chunks of pineapple and that was a big hit. I'll have to try them with squash.
