Comments on this Recipe

Absolutely Delicious! I made this exactly as the recipe called for and it was DELICIOUS! I got raved reviews from my guests. The vegetable Kabobs came out just the way I like it, al dente. The corn relish - Tastes like good, old fashioned, freshly-made corn relish and has the right balance of sweetness from the corn and tartness from the wine vinegar and mustard spice. I wouldn't change a thing! The Couscous was a perfect added combination to complete this wonderful tasty meal. Thank you so much for sharing This will be my Kabob stable recipe!

Loved it!!

This recipe got rave reviews from my husband and our guests! Our friends are vegans and this was the perfect recipe. The simplicity of the vinaigrette pairs wonderfully with the earthiness of the grilled veggies. The corn relish was amazing! I served this with couscous and it all made a fantastic meal. I highly recommend!
