Grilled Tomato-Zucchini Skewers
Makes 24 skewers
  • 2 pounds cherry tomatoes
  • 24 (4-inch) wooden skewers, soaked in water overnight
  • 2 medium or large zucchini, shaved into ribbons using a vegetable peeler
  • Blue Cheese Dressing (recipe follows), to serve
  • Garnish: chopped fresh chives, black pepper
  1. Preheat grill to medium heat (350°).
  2. Thread one tomato onto one skewer. Thread one end of one zucchini ribbon next to tomato, letting ribbon hang down. Thread another tomato on the skewer. Fold same zucchini ribbon over tomato, snaking ribbon between tomatoes. Repeat with remaining tomatoes, skewers, and zucchini ribbons.
  3. Grill tomato skewers, cooking on each side just until grill marks form, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve with Blue Cheese Dressing. Garnish with chives and black pepper, if desired.
