Tasty Sositch Skewers

With couscous. 

This was a super quick and easy dinner and it was awarded the Cal Seal of Approval.  So you know it was good!_Media Card_BlackBerry_pictures_IMG00089  IMG00088   

Printable Recipe

¼ cup fresh parsley
¼ cup fresh cilantro
4 scallions, rough chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1.  Puree the parsley, cilantro, scallions, olive oil and vinegar in a blender or food processor.  Season with s&p.

For the Skewers:

1 package smoked sausage, cut into 1" pieces
2 bell peppers (red, yellow, or orange), cut into 1" pieces
1 red onion, cut into 1" pieces
1 cup cherry tomatoes
Olive oil, S&P

2.  Toss the sausage, peppers, onions and tomatoes in a bowl with a little olive oil, s&p.  Thread onto skewers, alternating sausage and vegetables.  Grill for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally.  Brush the skewers with some of the pesto while grilling.

1 box couscous
3 scallions, chopped

3.  Cook the couscous according to package directions.  Save a little of the pesto for a dipping sauce, and mix the rest into the couscous.  Season with s&p.  Also mix in the chopped scallions. 
4.  YUM!  This would be really good with chicken or steak too.  I also made a side salad.
