1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cracked black pepper
6 large cloves garlic
8 button mushrooms
2 large zucchini, cut into 1-inch dice
1/2 cup red onion, cut into 1-inch dice
4 plum tomatoes, halved
4 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes, or 4 metal skewers

Preheat grill.
Whisk olive oil, vinegar, dill, salt and pepper together in a small bowl; set aside.

Assemble skewers, starting with garlic, mushroom, zucchini, onion, and tomato. Repeat until skewer is full, leaving 1 inch at each end of skewer. Brush each skewer with olive oil marinade. Grill for about 6 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked to your liking, turning skewers once after 3 minutes.

*I also grilled up some chicken and added it to my skewers*
