How to Make It

- Take 4 skewers and thread the veggies and scallops on them.
- Brush the skewers generously with the extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Brush the grill generously with the oil then add the skewers.
- Cook 4 minutes then rotate the skewers on the grill a 1/3 of the way. Rotate two more times until the scallops are opaque and the veggies are cooked.
- Remove the skewers from the grill and set aside.
- Place the ingredients for the pesto in a blender. Blend until smooth.
- Serve the pesto immediately with the scallops.
