Healthy Dinner: Grilled Kabobs with Steak and Vegetables

Grilled Kabobs with Steak and Vegetables1Nothing tastes as good as food right off the grill. Kabobs are easy to grill and there are many versions: chicken, turkey, pork, beef, lamb, meat ball, shrimp, scallop, halibut, vegetarian, and more. Grocery stores carry many commercial marinades and they are good. When you make your own marinade, however, you can adjust the seasoning to your dietary needs.

Everyone knows how great meat is on the grill, but it is also true that many types of vegetables taste better grilled than they do cooked in any other way. Grilling kabobs is an excellent way to make the most of this and make sure you get some tasty and healthy dinner veggies into your diet as well.



The best vegetables for grilling must be heartier than salad vegetables but lighter than most roots and tubers (potatoes, parsnips, etc.), although these heavier veggies can still be grilled as long as you boil them a bit at first to soften them up. A kabob buffet is an easy way to entertain family and friends. Put out bowls of marinated meat, poultry, fish, and an array of vegetables. Let guests assemble their own kabobs. Leave a tiny space between the food (don’t squeeze it together) and don’t overload the skewers. Serve kabobs with fresh fruit salsa, tomato salsa from a jar, an array of salads, breads, and summer fruit. Now that’s living!
