Nothing showcases the flavor of fresh-picked summer vegetables better than a great homemade marinade featuring lemon and fresh rosemary and a quick sear on the grill.


Farm Stand Vegetable Skewers with Rosemary-Dijon Vinaigrette
Recipe from 
Servings: Serves 6
Rosemary-Dijon Vinaigrette
     tablespoons  sherry vinegar
     tablespoons  Dijon mustard
       small shallots, minced (3 tablespoons)
     tablespoons  lemon juice
     tablespoon  grated lemon zest
    2/3  cup  olive oil
     tablespoons  chopped fresh rosemary
Vegetable Skewers
       small red potatoes, quartered
    24    sugar snap peas
    24    white or cremini mushrooms, stems removed
       red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
       red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
       medium yellow squash, cut into 12 rounds
       medium zucchini, cut into 12 rounds
    3/4  cup  Rosemary-Dijon Vinaigrette
To make Rosemary-Dijon Vinaigrette: Whisk together vinegar, mustard, shallots, lemon juice, and lemon zest in small bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil until mixture thickens or emulsifies. Stir in rosemary, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Set aside.
To make Vegetable Skewers: Cook potatoes 3 minutes in large pot of boiling salted water. Add sugar snap peas, and cook 1 minute more, or until sugar snap peas are crisp-tender. Drain vegetables, and rinse under cold water. Drain once more, and pat dry.
Toss potatoes, sugar snap peas, mushrooms, red bell pepper, red onion, yellow squash, and zucchini with 1/2 cup Rosemary-Dijon Vinaigrette. (Reserve remaining Rosemary-Dijon Vinaigrette for another use.) Cover, and refrigerate 1 hour, or overnight.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Thread vegetables onto 12 presoaked bamboo skewers, leaving 1/4-inch space between each one to ensure even cooking.
Rub grate or vegetable grill topper with vegetable oil. Grill skewers 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until vegetables are slightly charred and soft. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup Rosemary-Dijon Vinaigrette.
