Add color to your grilling occasions with these white button mushroom, red bell pepper and blue potato kabobs.

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 2 cups (3 mushrooms, 3 potato halves, and half of a red pepper)

Ingredients

6 2-inch blue potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
12 large white button mushrooms, halved
2 red bell peppers, cut into 2-inch pieces
4 cups mache or arugula lettuce

Directions

Preheat grill. While grill heats, boil water and blanch potato cubes for 5 minutes, then cut in half and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, rosemary and salt. Add mushrooms, potatoes and pepper pieces and toss to coat, then skewer individually, to create four skewers of each ingredient. Reserve the remaining marinade and grill vegetables until tender, turning once, about five to ten minutes total.

Split lettuce between four plates and place one of each skewer on top; drizzle with reserved marinade and serve either warm or cold.
