Grilled Chicken Sausages and Summer Vegetables is a meal we constantly eat through the warmer months since it is ready in no time and packs in so much flavor.
Summer is for grilling and sometimes the easiest meals are the most delicious. This simple Grilled Sausage and Vegetables is one of our favorite things to make in the summer and it is ready in under twenty minutes. All it takes is some flavorful chicken or turkey sausages, a bunch of in season vegetables, fresh basil, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Everything is quickly grilled to bring out some smoky flavor and then tossed together for one hearty, healthy, and seriously yummy meal. If you want to add a starch to the meal, consider quickly par-cooking some potatoes in the microwave (or boiling water) and throwing those in the mix as well. Because grilled potatoes are amazing.
Now when it comes to choosing the sausage for this recipe, you can't really go wrong. Usually I look for sausages with around 160 calories each and tend to go for more Medittererean flavor profiles since they pair well with the basil and balsamic vinegar. However, we have also made this dish with spicy sausages and it turns out delicious. Some of my favorites chicken sausages to try are sundried tomato, spicy Italian, spinach and feta, and roasted garlic.
When it comes to the veggies, you can also mix it up as well. Green beans, asparagus. artichokes, bell peppers, broccoli, and cauliflower are come out great on the grill. Usually I reach for whatever I have fresh in the fridge. Lastly, as you might have guessed, you can also mix up the herbs. Instead of fresh basil, try rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley, or cilantro. And if you're like me, you won't think twice about topping everything with some fresh Parmesan, goat, or feta cheese.
