There’s something so fun about these Grilled Rainbow Vegetable Kabobs!
These Grilled Rainbow Vegetable Kabobs are totally beautiful and are perfect for company because they look so impressive.
I recommend investing and metal skewers so you don’t have to worry about pre-soaking wooden ones. You also don’t have to worry about them splintering. This can be a fun project to do with the kids period obviously you want to be the one handling the knife, but after all of your fruits and veggies are chopped, the kids can help you make a pattern. My daughter loves laying out all the components in Rainbow order for me to assemble. Older children can help thread the fruit and veggies on to the skewers. This makes such an impressive side dish with all the beautiful colors!
Grilled Rainbow Vegetable Kabobs Recipe
Here’s how to put together this beautiful and delicious Grilled Rainbow Vegetable Kabobs:
Makes 4 large vegetable kabobs
4 red cherry tomatoes
1/2 a red pepper
4 orange cherry tomatoes
1/2 orange pepper
1 small yellow squash
1/2 yellow pepper
1 small zucchini
1/2 red onion
salt and pepper to taste
granulated garlic to taste
parsley to garnish (optional)
Begin by preparing the vegetables. Cut the zucchini and squash into round slices. Chop the peppers and onions into pieces. Thread the vegetables onto the skewers in a rainbow pattern.
Brush the kabobs with olive oil on all sides, then season with the granulated garlic, salt and pepper.
When the grill reaches medium high heat (about 350-400 degrees F), place the skewers on over indirect heat. Close the lid and cook 3-4 minutes. Turn the skewers using tongs and cook another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Take care not to overcook.
Remove to a serving plate and garnish with parsley, if desired.
You can serve these kabobs right on the skewer or take them off and toss them with pasta in a simple dressing for a grilled pasta salad side dish. Either way, you have a beautiful, flavorful, and tasty dish! If you’re looking for a protein to serve with these, check out my Grilled Chipotle Marinated Chicken!
