Fresh vegetables and lean white meat combine to make these skewers a treat for those of us in need of a healthy dinner recipe! Cooked on the grill, only salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar are needed to enhance their flavor. You may be surprised at the way in which very simply prepared dishes can outshine other, more complex, dishes. Feel free to replace the vegetables with any fresh veggies you have on hand.
