Italian Barbecue Grilled Vegetable Marinade

We’re actually posting about vegetables today:)

It’s crazy, I know.

Remember that crazy-named Bald Guy Chicken from last week?  As I mentioned, that chicken is one of our favorite meals. And with it, we love making vegetable shish-kabobs with this Italian Barbecue Grilled Vegetable Marinade.

The recipe is very simple…Remember? Equal parts of barbecue sauce and Kraft Tuscan House Italian dressing.  And if you can’t find that specific type of Italian dressing, find one that has lots of olive oil in it!

That’s all there is to the marinade.  And it is just as good over veggies as it is over chicken.

You can really use any type of vegetables that you want, but we like to use potatoes, red & yellow peppers, zucchini, and red onions.  You could add in mushrooms, tomatoes, or whatever else happens to be in season!

We like to cook our potatoes about half way in the microwave before skewering them on shish-kabob sticks.  That way they don’t have to be on the grill for so long in order for the potato to get cooked.  This is just our preference, and you can cook them entirely on the grill, if you wish!

Cut up all of your veggies into bite size pieces and marinate them in the Italian barbecue dressing all day.  Then skewer them and throw them on the grill!

Grill them until they are as tender as you like them. We cooked ours about 10-15 minutes, rotating them several times while cooking.

Aren’t they so pretty and colorful?

These are the perfect side dish to grilled chicken!
