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:
- Green pepper
- Red pepper
- Yellow pepper
- Cherry tomatoes
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!
