You will need six 12-inch bamboo skewers, soaked for 20 minutes in warm water before skewering the vegetables.

  2. Cube all remaining vegetables, leave the tomatoes whole and place in a large bowl.Toss vegetables with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Let sit 1 minute, then combine with the eggplant and 1 Tbsp oil tossing until well coated. Thread each skewer with 2 pieces each of red and yellow bell pepper, 2 pieces squash or zucchini, 2 cubes eggplant and 2 cherry tomatoes wrapped in basil leaves. Cover with plastic wrap until grill is ready.
  3. Grill kebabs until vegetables are softened and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.
For the dressing:
  1. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, chopped shallots, vinegar and chopped basil until well combined. Cover, and set aside. Once cooked, arrange kebabs on a serving platter, and drizzle with dressing. Serve immediately.
