    From Martha Stewart:

    Summer Vegetable Skewers with Pesto Drizzle

    Grilled summer vegetables are a perfect foil for an aromatic basil-infused oil.

    Yield
    Serves 12
    Ingredients

    3 cups packed fresh basil
    1 1/2 cups olive oil
    Coarse salt
    4 Japanese eggplants, cut diagonally into 1 1/2-inch-thick pieces
    4 summer squashes, cut diagonally into 1 1/2-inch-thick pieces
    4 zucchini, cut diagonally into 1 1/2-inch-thick pieces
    Freshly ground pepper
    Directions

    Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Cook basil for 30 seconds. Drain, and rinse under cold water. Dry basil gently with paper towels.
    Process basil, oil, and 2 teaspoons salt in a blender until smooth. Strain through a sieve into a small bowl.
    Preheat grill to medium. (If you are using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for 5 to 6 seconds.)
    Thread vegetables onto skewers (1 of each kind per skewer). Brush lightly with basil oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill until softened, flipping often, about 12 minutes. Drizzle with remaining basil oil.
