Fruit Kabobs

These are so simple and oh so delicious. When you serve these at a party everyone will be so impressed. Serve these to your kids and they can not resist eating fruit. Let your kids help and it is a great bonding time.

Melon balls

To create melon balls, use a small cookie scoop. Cut the melon in half and remove the seeds. Press the scoop down and twist your wrist turning the scoop under the flesh. This is not a forward dragging motion but a down and twist. Dragging will result in long strands.

Cut the remaining fruit into cubes or balls. Remove the top of the strawberries, use these whole. Wash and dry the grapes and other berries. Remove the deep eyes of the pineapple…nobody wants to spit these out at your party.

When making your fruit kabobos it is a good idea to put sturdy fruit on the ends, this helps keep the delicate fruit from sliding off. I like to alternate the colors as best I can to create and eye appealing display.

Cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve. The extra pieces are yours to enjoy, or put in a tossed salad with vinaigrette. A basic fruit salad is yummy too.
