  • 1 sml fresh yellow summer squash
  • 1 sml fresh zucchini, with skin
  • 0 1/2 ea fresh yellow bell pepper, large, 3 3/4"
  • 0 1/2 lrg fresh red bell pepper
  • 0 3/4 ea fresh green bell pepper, medium, 2 1/2"
  • 0 1/2 lrg fresh red onion, mature
  • 14 ea fresh cherry tomatoes
  • 7 lrg fresh radishes
  • 7 sml fresh mushrooms
  • 0 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tsp fresh chives
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme
  • 0 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp black pepper, ground


  1. Prepare 7 bamboo skewers by soaking in water for at least 1 hour.
  2. Prepare vegetables. Slice yellow squash and zucchini into 7 even pieces, about ½-inch thick. Cut bell peppers into 7 roughly even rectangles at least 1 ½-inches square. Cut outer layers of onion into quarters, resulting in 14 pieces at least 1 ½-inch wide. Trim ends from radishes and remove stems from mushrooms. Thread each skewer with 1 piece squash, 1 piece zucchini, 1 piece each color bell pepper, 2 pieces red onion, 2 cherry tomatoes, 1 radish and 1 mushroom.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, minced chives, thyme, salt and pepper. Brush both sides of the vegetable skewers with the lemon-herb mix and set aside for 5-10 minutes as the grill warms.
  4. Heat gas grill over high flame. Once the grates are hot, reduce the flame to medium and grill the vegetable skewers for 4 minutes per side, or until the yellow squash reaches the desired level of tenderness. 
  5. Remove from grill and brush skewers with any remaining lemon-herb mix, sprinkle with salt to taste, and serve warm. One skewer is one serving.
