This is a recipe that makes me look good! I have made this recipe on several occasions and with several variations. You might want to add an olive (Queen) and or a cube of dry Italian sausage to the other ingredients on the skewer. A good Balsamic Vinegar dressing is a nice or Strompomus Basil Dressing is good. You can also make them the night before with good results.
