    Ingredients:

    1 cup boiled red new potatoes, quartered
    1 cup red, yellow, or green bell pepper chunks
    1 cup red onion chunks
    1 cup white button mushrooms
    1 cup zucchini or yellow squash chunks
    1 cup cherry tomatoes
    3 cups sirloin chunks

    Garlic & Herb Marinade

    1/2 cup olive oil
    3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    2 tablespoons agave syrup
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    Whisk all of the marinade ingredients together and refrigerate in a covered container or use right away. Before grilling, toss the vegetables in the  marinade, and allow them to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Skewer the vegetables and beef chunks, and grill them for 4-5 minutes on each side.
