Tomato Gnocchi Kebabs

Posted on

Have you ever tried grilled gnocchi straight off the grill? If not, you’re in for a treat! The crispy-chewy texture is a must-try, especially with these tomato gnocchi kebabs featuring homemade salsa verde.

Grilled gnocchi, along with blistered tomatoes and tender red onion, make for a perfect summer snack or a simple side dish for any cookout or BBQ. They come together quickly, but if you’re short on time, you can skip the homemade salsa verde and use fresh basil instead (though trust us, the salsa verde is worth it!). Serve these kebabs alongside grilled asparagus or an arugula salad for the ultimate summer dinner.
