Healthy, summery grilled lime kebabs

June 23, 2015 | Heather Shannon

Fire up the grill this summer and enjoy these light, simple and flavorful kebabs featuring shrimp, lime, cilantro, mushrooms and tomatoes.

Tomatoes pack a punch: they’re a great source of vitamin C, potassium, copper and more. Your heart will love the boost it gets from the garlic in this recipe, and the olive oil is a healthy fat that will leave you feeling satisfied.

Feeling creative? Consider adding red onion, green peppers or zucchini.

For an extra nutritious boost, add a small green salad as a side dish.
