    These skewers are great at a barbecue and it's easy to double or half the recipe. Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit (June 2004)

      These were pretty good, I thought that the dressing went well with the mushrooms and squash but not the other vegetables. It would be better with garlic added in the marinade.

      Very good marinade. I made the skewers with onions, green peppers, red peppers, zuchini, yellow squash, mushrooms and tofu. The flavor was very good and a real crowd pleaser (not always easy with veggies and tofu :)
