Rainbow Vegetable Skewers

These bright and beautiful Rainbow Vegetable Skewers make a delicious and healthy side dish.

With tomatoes, peppers, squash, beets, and onions, these vegetable skewers celebrate all the colors of the rainbow.

These Rainbow Vegetable Skewers are so simple to make: Slide them onto wood or metal skewers, brush with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then grill (or broil) them for six to eight minutes. That’s it.

Pro tip: If you use wood or bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 10–20 minutes before adding the vegetables. This will help prevent the skewers from burning.

This recipe is also super customizable:  Other vegetables and fruits that grill well include mangoes, peaches, pineapples, grapes, mushrooms, and eggplant.
