Fruit Kabobs

Written By: Peggy Korody - Aug• 01•16

Here’s an easy dessert to go with your summer barbecue.  You can use any combination of fruit you want and quickly whip up the Greek yogurt dip.  I also like this as a mid-day snack.

Fruit Kabobs

Ingredients

  • Any combination of fresh fruit you like, cut into chunks (I used fresh pineapple, grapes, and strawberries)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (I use Greek yogurt, it’s higher in protein)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • Zest from half of orange (or you could use lemon or lime)
  • Wooden skewers soaked in water for half an hour

Instructions

  1. Preheat your outdoor grill to medium high. You can also use an indoor grill pan on medium high.
  2. Thread the fruit onto the skewers, set aside.
  3. In a small bowl mix the yogurt, honey and orange zest, set aside.
  4. Grill the fruit kabobs on the hot grill for 2-3 minutes per side. They should be heated through and have nice grill marks.
  5. Serve immediately with the yogurt dip.

Notes

If you have some fresh mint, you could chop some and sprinkle on the cooked kabobs before serving.
