Step 1

Place a large resealable plastic bag in a shallow dish. Add eggplant, zucchini, summer squash, mushrooms, sweet pepper, and red onion to the bag. In a small, bowl whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons parsley, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Pour mixture over vegetables. Seal bag; turn several times to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours. Drain vegetables, discarding marinade. Thread vegetables on eight 10- to 12-inch skewers*, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces.

Step 2

For a gas or charcoal grill, grill skewers on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender and lightly charred, turning occasionally. Garnish with additional parsley.

*If using bamboo skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
