Course: Side Dish
Servings: 24 servings
Author: Betsy Edwards
Ingredients
  • 1 pineapple
  • 24 wooden skewers
  • 24 pieces watermelon
  • 48 strawberries (Note: Get 3 pounds. Each pound of strawberries = about 18 strawberries)
  • 24 pieces cantaloupe (1 cantaloupe)
  • 24 pieces mandarin oranges (1 can or small jar)
  • 24 pieces pineapple (1 whole pineapple will yield about 6 slices with 6 pieces per slice to total 36 pieces)
  • 24 slices kiwi fruit or 24 pieces honeydew melon (About 6 slices per kiwi, so get 4 kiwi)
Instructions
  1. Cut the bottom off the pineapple so it sits flat on a plate.
  2. Cut the fruit into 1-inch, or bite-size, chunks.  Trim the leaves off the strawberries, but do not core them.

  3. If using wooden or bamboo skewers, make sure all the splinters are off of them by rolling two together in your hands, or rub them over each other, as if you are sharpening a knife.
  4. Skewer the fruit on the skewers, alternating fruit types and colors on each stick.

  5. Make sure to insert the skewers into the pineapple angled up, so the fruit don't slip off the end.

MAKE AHEAD NOTE:
  1. Pineapple Kabobs can be made earlier in the day for serving the same day.  For best results, I would not make them the day prior
