Summer Kabobs

Summer Kabobs: Cheese, Fruit and Mint Skewers,

Festive No-Cook
Skewer Food

Mmmm, more skewer food. Summer Kabobs make excellent cold summer appetizers... no cooking!

A kabob platter adds a festive touch to any party. Once you've decided upon the food combinations for your Kabobs, simply thread them onto skewers, arrange them on the platter, and serve. Or use an orange, melon, or pineapple as a pincushion for your skewers.

Party picks, decorative toothpicks, cocktail skewers, and bamboo skewers all work well.

Examples of Skewer Foods

  • Ham, sausage, smoked oysters, herring, shrimp, cheese
  • Cherry tomatoes, cocktail onions, pimiento olives, black olives, mushrooms, pickles, avocado
  • Pineapple, cantaloupe, grapes and strawberries
  • Foods like folded salami slices and rolled roast beef strips give added interest.

Summer Kabobs: Pickles, Olives, Red Peppers and Cocktail Onions,

Good combinations to get you started:

   • Ham and pineapple

   • Shrimp and avocado

   • Cheese, cocktail onions and pickles

   • Smoked oysters with cheese and cherry tomatoes

   • Cheese with any fruit selection
