These skewers can be made in a flash, especially if you do the prep work ahead of time. You can assemble the dish through step 2 and refrigerate it up to 8 hours before cooking. Let the skewers come to room temperature while you prepare the grill or heat your grill pan. Serve over a bed cooked rice or pasta tossed with torn spinach for an extra pop of colour. If you don’t have metal skewers, you can use the wooden variety. To prevent the wooden skewers from burning, soak them in water for about 20 minutes before threading the ingredients onto them.

Ingredients

Cooked chicken sausage(s)

12 oz, spicy Italian-variety, cut diagonally in 16 pieces

Yellow pepper(s)

1 large, cut into 16 pieces

Uncooked red onion(s)

1 small, cut into 16 thin wedges

Fresh cherry tomato(es)

16 medium

Table salt

¾ tsp(s), divided (or less to taste)

Black pepper

¾ tsp(s), freshly ground, divided (or less to taste)

Extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp(s)

Balsamic vinegar

1 tsp(s)

Garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), large, finely chopped

Fresh basil

¼ cup(s), torn

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high or place ridged grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Alternate pieces of sausage, bell pepper, and onion and tomatoes on each of 8 skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water at least 20 minutes to prevent charring.)
  3. Lightly coat skewers with nonstick spray; sprinkle skewers all over with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Grill skewers, turning occasionally, until sausage is browned and vegetables are tender, 12−15 minutes. Transfer to platter.
