  • 1
    Place Pesto Aioli ingredients in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on medium speed about 3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape sides, until smooth. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Soak skewers in water 10 minutes; drain. On 2 of the skewers, thread tomatoes, leaving 1/8-inch space between each piece. Repeat with remaining skewers and vegetables. Brush vegetables with olive oil; sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper.
  • 3
    Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook until grill marks form and vegetables are fork-tender, 3 to 4 minutes for tomatoes, 7 to 10 minutes for bell peppers, 10 to 12 minutes for onion and 12 to 15 minutes for zucchini and yellow squash. Serve kabobs with pesto aioli.

Expert Tips

  • You can make the pesto aioli up to a day in advance.
  • Serve with quinoa or beans for a complete vegetarian meal.
  • To toast pine nuts, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.
  • Cooking Vegetarian? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Metal skewers can be used instead of bamboo. Bamboo skewers are soaked in water so they're less likely to burn; there is no need to soak if you use metal skewers.
