No cholesterol, Fiber 3g. Protein 2g. Sodium 297mg
1 tsp grated lime zest
3 Tbs fresh lime juice
2 Tbs bottled ginger juice*
4 tsp olive oil
2 tsp maple or brown sugar
½ tsp salt
1 zucchini (about 8oz), cut into ½ inch chunks
1 yellow squash (about 8oz), cut into ½ inch chunks
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2 inch chunks
1 large red onion, halved and cut into 1 inch wedges
1.     In a large bowl, whisk together lime zest, lime juice, ginger juice, oil, maple sugar, and salt.
2.     Add the zucchini, yellow squash, pepper and onion and toss gently to coat with the marinade. Let stand 30 minutes at room temperature.
3.     Preheat the grill to medium. On eight 10 inch skewers, alternately thread the zucchini, yellow squash, pepper, and onion. Grill the veggies until they are tender, turning as they color, about 10 minutes. Use any remaining marinade as a baste.
*This marinade would also be great on shrimp or scallops!
**If you can’t find bottled ginger juice, grate 3 to 5 Tbs or fresh ginger, and squeeze through a piece of cheesecloth to get out 2 Tbs of juice. The amount of grated ginger you need will vary somewhat, depending on the freshness of the ginger.
