Shrimp and Pepper Kebabs with Grilled Red Onion Slaw
These healthy grilled shrimp and mini bell pepper kebabs come together in just 30 minutes, so they’re great for weeknight dinners. A bag of coleslaw mix is a time-saving meal starter. Here, we make it our own by mixing in grilled red onion and crushed pita chips. A homemade herb-feta dressing both coats the slaw and sauces the kebabs……………………

Ratatouille Dip
Ratatouille is normally served as a main dish but here it’s served with pita chips and enjoyed as an appetizer. It’s made in the slow cooker so if you’re serving it at a party just leave it in the cooker on warm while your guests dig in!……………………………….
