Expert Tips

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • If the weather doesn't cooperate with your grilling plans, you can grill these skewers indoors on a ridged grill pan. Just heat the pan to medium, and add a couple of minutes to the cook time.
