Veggie kabobs are a fun way to serve summer vegetables. Rosemary makes a fancy skewer for baby potatoes and carrots, but you can use metal or wooden skewers, if you prefer.
In our picture, veggie kabobs are on the left and center of platter. To the right of the veggies is a skewer of Grilled Pork Tenderloin Spiedini, an oregano-and fennel-marinated main dish. (Spiedini is Italian for skewers.)
A simple marinade gives this grilled entree a pleasant lemon-pepper flavor. The recipe was inspired by the kabobs served at Al-Ameer Restaurant in Dearborn, Michigan. Try serving with tabbouleh, a traditional Middle Eastern grain side dish.
Quarter red, yellow or green sweet peppers; remove stems, seeds and membranes. Thread small tomatoes on skewers. Slice Italian bread. Brush all with olive oil. Place on grill rack over medium coals. Grill peppers 8 to 10 minutes or until tender and browned; grill tomato skewers and bread slices 2 minutes or until tomatoes are softened and bread is toasted, turning all once during grilling. Cut peppers into bite-size pieces and bread into cubes. Toss veggies and bread with torn romaine, some Parmesan cheese and Italian dressing.
