Nothing says summertime like your garden vegetable pickles and grilled skewers. Instead of making 1980’s kabobs on the grill, just go all meat on the skewer and serve your veggies on the side This is a fast recipe to prepare and the SRF bavette kebabs make it even easier. The bavette meat is pre-sliced and comes ready to go on a wood skewer.

I like to make my own pickled veggies with the summer harvest from the garden. A jar of giardiniera from the store works just as well. This dish is practically a meal by itself, but a side of tossed fresh greens or a simple warm lentil salad fills out the menu.
