Add these easy and delicious Zucchini Tomato Skewers with Fresh Herb Dressing to any summertime grilling menu!
It has begun!
After a week of hazy and hot weather – our backyard garden is starting to yield zucchini and the very first of our sweet cherry tomatoes! It’s just a matter of time before we have more zucchini, summer squash, and tomatoes than we know what to do with – and I can’t wait!
(Fair warning: New zucchini and tomato recipes are coming soon to A Family Feast!)
So, on those nights when you are firing up the grill – why not make these healthy and delicious Zucchini Tomato Skewers with Fresh Herb Dressing?
This colorful dish looks super fancy – but it is easy enough for any night of the week. Simply slice your zucchini into thin, long strips (this inexpensive mandoline works great) – then thread the strips onto skewers along with cherry tomatoes.
Brush the Zucchini Tomato Skewers with a little bit of oil – then quickly grill just for a minute or two on each side until the zucchini and tomatoes soften and pick up a slight char.
Once cooked, serve your Zucchini Tomato Skewers with a Fresh Herb Dressing made from oregano and parsley, plus lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, shallots, and a little bit of jalapeño for some gentle heat.
We used a mix of red and yellow cherry tomatoes to give our Zucchini Tomato Skewers with a Fresh Herb Dressing a colorful look – but any favorite cherry tomato variety will work for this easy side dish.
