Poking around for something different for dinner? Stack some veggies on skewers and set them on the grill for a great way to get your greens (and yellows, reds and oranges!). Sometimes, presentation can make all the difference in getting kids or picky eaters to try healthier options. Not only do shish kebabs make a plant-based meal more fun-looking on a plate, they pack in nutrition and amazing flavor—especially when the tower’s tiers are pre-marinated in a zesty, herb-rich dressing before they hit the heat.
