Step 1One day prior, or the morning of, cut vegetables into 2” cubes and place in a plastic resealable bag. Add Italian dressing and allow to marinate. Once marinated, alternate the various vegetables on a 6” skewer until the skewer is full. Repeat until all vegetables are used.
Step 2Remove the tenderloins from the package and then cut into 2” cubes. Place 4 to 5 pieces on wooden or metal skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for a minimum of 3 hours to prevent the skewers from burning while cooking.
Step 3Preheat outdoor grill or charcoal grill to 350°F and lightly oil the grates.
Step 4Place the turkey tenderloin skewers and vegetable skewers on the grill and cook 10 to 12 ½ minutes, then flip.
Step 5Continue to cook until they reach a minimum internal temperature of 165°F (approximately 10 to 12 ½ additional minutes). Use a meat thermometer to confirm internal temperature.
Step 6While turkey tenderloins and vegetable skewers are cooking, prepare the Basil Pesto (can be made a day prior).
Step 7Using a food processor, blend together the basil, garlic and cheese until coarsely chopped. With the food processor running, slowly add the olive oil and blend until smooth. Salt to taste, then set aside until needed.
Step 8Once the kabobs are cooked, place on a large platter then top the turkey kabobs with a small amount of basil pesto. Place the remaining pesto in a small bowl.
Step 9Serve immediately.
