Pineapple and Vegetable Kabobs

In honor of Memorial Day, I just had to post about these. I actually made them for the LOST party we hosted two Sundays ago, and they were a big hit. I had gone to the public market that Saturday and picked up a bunch of fresh vegetables, so all I needed to pick up at the grocery store was a pineapple and some wooden skewers and I was ready to go. Make these today if you’re going to grill out – they’re easy, and almost as much fun to make as they are to eat!

The fun thing about kabobs is how customizable they are! I used:

I also threw in some pineapple, because I LOVE grilled pineapple. Here are some other suggestions: red or white onions, zucchini, summer squash, eggplant, potatoes, strawberries, peaches, watermelon. You can go sweet or savory – or both!

Before I started any of the prep work, I placed the wooden skewers in a shallow baking dish filled with water for about 30 minutes, so that they wouldn’t burn when we put them on the grill.

Next, since I bought a whole pineapple, hubby helped me cut it up into large chunks.

Then, I cut up the peppers and mushrooms. Make sure not to slice the mushrooms too thin, or they will split when you try to run the skewers through them.

I assembled the kabobs…

…and then hubby grilled them on low-medium heat for about 10-15 minutes until all of the vegetables were nice and tender. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of the final product because they were devoured so quickly…but that’s all the more reason for you to give them a try!

  11. DessertForTwo – Yes, the public market is pretty much the same as the farmer’s market. Instead of only selling fresh fruits and veggies though, vendors at our public market also sell things like hanging plants and flowers, baked goods, clothing, etc.

  14. What a wonderful side dish to any outdoor meal! Plus, the veggies and pineapple cook perfectly because they don’t have to stay longer to make sure the meat is also cooked. Love the idea!
