Grilled Okra & Tomato Skewers Recipe

Hubby and I planted a dozen cherry tomato plants in our garden this year and all of them are doing beautifully. In about 2 weeks, we will be enjoying our first harvest of the season! We love to toss them onto our salads but never thought about using them on a vegetable skewer until eMeals shared this recipe with us. Today, I am sharing it with all of you and with July 4th coming up, this would be fabulous for your backyard barbecue!
