(Recipe) Garden Skewers

One of the highlights of summer is bright, fresh produce. Whether red, yellow, orange, purple or green, colorful produce packs amazing health benefits. That’s because most colorful vegetables are loaded with antioxidants that strengthen your immune system and help stave off cancer, heart disease, aging and a host of health problems.

The other great thing about fresh produce is the taste. There’s no better way to enjoy fresh veggies than on skewers, grilled to tender, flavorful perfection. Head to your garden or local farmer’s market to get the freshest ingredients for this healthy recipe.
