Yield
6 servings (serving size: 2 spiedini and 2 1/2 tablespoons salsa)

Spiedini is Italian for "little skewers". These grilled kebabs are paired with a zesty sauce of herbs, nuts, citrus, and capers. For a backyard barbecue, prepare the salsa up to a day ahead, and assemble the skewers earlier in the day. Coat with cooking spray and seasonings just before grilling.

How to Make It

Step 1

Soak 12 (10-inch) wooden skewers in water 30 minutes to prevent burning.

Step 2

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Step 3

To prepare salsa, combine first 12 ingredients; set aside.

Step 4

To prepare spiedini, thread chicken and zucchini alternately onto each of 12 (10-inch) skewers. Coat spiedini with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place on grill rack; grill 6 minutes or until done, turning once. Serve with salsa.
