Grilled veggie skewers and chimichurri sauce are a match made in culinary heaven. The charred and tender vegetables on the skewers create a beautiful canvas for the bold and vibrant flavors of the chimichurri sauce. This traditional Argentinian sauce, typically made with fresh herbs, garlic, vinegar, and olive oil, adds a burst of tanginess that complements the smoky grilled veggies. Together, they create a harmony of flavors that will impress even the most discerning palates.

If you don’t have skewers, no problem! Use the veggies that you already have and cut them into preferred pieces. Grill everything up to get a nice char, and then you can slice them into smaller pieces, if you wish. Planing for your next backyard BBQ? We recommend ordering a decent set of stainless steel skewers!
