Citrus Cilantro Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs

I love cooking food on the grill. It cuts cooking time down significantly, getting food on the table faster and leaving more time for summer fun. This marinade is light yet flavorful. I love using fresh ingredients and, being in season, they are full of flavor as well. I use avocado oil because of it’s high smoke point of 450 degrees. Perfect for cooking on the grill. Be sure not to let your food burn though. Burnt food promotes cancer in your body.
