Reviews for Grilled Vegetable Skewers
"Delicious!!!! So easy and pretty too. I did add mushrooms and some par cooked baby potatoes to ours. The second time I made this we didn't have enough skewers so grilled some of them in a basket and it worked out well."
"I love the addition of corn on these skewers. I did brush them with Italian dressing before grilling because I like the flavor with grilled vegetables."
"Very good, so easy to make and healthy, too! What more could a person want!!!"
