    We made this exactly as written but for one tiny change. Due to a bumper crop of cherry tomatoes in our garden we added them to the skewers as well. We wrapped each tomato in a basil leaf before threading it onto the skewer. - 6/2/08

    We put this marinade on yellow squash, zucchini, onions and mushrooms and roasted them in the oven and we really liked it! It made enough marinade to coat a 9x13 pan of veggies. - 8/31/09

    Soak the skewers in water before adding the veggies and the ends won't burn on the grill as much. Threading the veggies first and then marinating will make it easier than fumbling with slippery veggies. My family loves adding bell peppers to this mix! - 5/13/10

    Another hint is to put the veggies and marinade in a ziplock bag overnight. This allows you to swirl them all around to make sure everything gets coated. As the recipe says, many different veggies can be added. - 5/2/10

    We love this, I have used the same ingredients for years. Living in the south, we grill often year around and there is nothing better than grilled vegetables! I don't use skewers most of the time, simply a grill pan with holes works great.
    They will have a wonderful flavor if still crispy. - 2/25/10
