When I hosted my church’s Vision Team for a cookout last year, I served several dishes in little jars and they were so popular that I wanted a fresh idea for this year. I drummed around on Pinterest and decided this was the year for skewers! Or kabobs, as they were called in the 90’s. So, I served everything on a stick. Like the fair. And poked my fingers a million times. And it was fun.
The nicest thing about skewers is they are so simple and don’t require complicated recipes. You can pretty much follow along the picture for a cooking guide.
For the main course, I grilled and served Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers with Tzatziki Sauce along with marinated vegetables. My guests added various side dishes.
For dessert: Strawberry Shortcake on a stick!
All tasty good fun, but I will say that last year’s jars seemed to be a bit more popular. Overall, though, skewers made for a fun summer dinner that kept me away from the stove and present in the company of my guests.
Anyone else have fun skewer recipes?
