  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water

  • 3 mangos

  • 1 medium zucchini (or 2 small)
  • 1 medium red onion

  1. Preheat a grill to medium heat.

  7. Remove the sauce to a bowl and cool the sauce while you make the remainder of the recipe.

  9. If the sauce becomes too thick after cooling, add a very small amount of warm water a little at a time to return to the desired consistency.
  10. For the skewers, cut the mango into large cubes (larger than a dice) so that threads onto the skewers.
  11. Chop the red pepper, orange pepper, zucchini, and red onion into large pieces (you can cut the onion in wedges and use a few layers when threading).
  12. Thread the veggies and mangos onto skewers.
  13. Place the skewers on a tray and brush them with the glaze on one side.
  14. Place the skewers on the grill, glazed side down, then brush the tops with the remaining glaze. G
