Simple Grilled Kebabs

One of the great things about going to cookouts and potlucks is seeing what everyone brings to the party. At a 4th of July barbecue last weekend one of the guests brought a fun appetizer: tortellini, prosciutto, mozzarella and hot peppers on a skewer. Amidst the chips, dips, and cheeses, the starburst of tortellini kebabs looked enticing. It got me thinking about all the great ways to use a skewer to make an easy and delicious summer meal.

The endless combination of meat + veggies/fruit that you can put in a kebab make it the perfect grill fare. You get a full meal all on one stick! Steak, chorizo, chicken, shrimp, veggies and even fruit will all do well grilled on a skewer and paired with a great sauce.

Here are a few varieties to test out your kebab prowess. Click on each photo to see the recipe…
