Reviews for Christmas Fruit Kabobs
"This was a hit with everyone but I used a different dipping sauce made with fruit flavored yogurt. Very colorful and fun to eat."
"I've been making fruit Kabobs for years and have them for Chirstmas dinner or just for any smorgasbord I happen to have, however, I use a little tick for presentation that seems to work out really well. I stick my skewers into a full pineapple, set that in the middle of a serving tray and place all my extra fruit around the bottom of the pineapple whick also helps it stand up."
