Everyday Chef, Fruits & Veggies—More Matters
This easy recipe is perfect for summer entertaining on the 4th of July … and beyond! Fun, festive and healthy, these kebobs make a tasty side dish or dessert for any BBQ.
I opted for strawberries, bananas and blueberries for the red, white and blue but you can substitute your favorite fruit of choice. Blackberries, watermelon and raspberries would work as well. I liked the look of alternating strawberry and banana, then finishing with a row of blueberries, but any pattern will work.
