Ingredients

Kabobs

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 medium yellow squash
  • 2 red or green bell peppers, seeded
  • 2 medium onions
  • 16 cherry tomatoes

  • Nonstick cooking spray

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp mustard

Directions

  1. Rinse all the vegetables. Cut zucchini, squash and bell peppers into 2-inch chunks. Cut red onions into wedges.
  2. Combine the cut vegetables with the tomatoes and mushrooms in a bowl.
  3. Cut the corn into 1-inch pieces and cook in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Add the cooled cooked corn to the other vegetables.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the vinegar, mustard, garlic and thyme for the sauce.
