This is a dowry recipe I brought with me from western Pennsylvania. To fully enjoy this dish, just serve it as a snack or appetizer with some hot bread and a beverage. It's nice to serve at parties, and I like it as a late-night snack, too! It can be made the day before, and it also freezes well.
I've traveled to many different countries and am always on the lookout for cookbooks. I adapted this recipe from a Turkish cookbook and it brings rave reviews whenever I serve it. I usually serve the kabobs with rice pilaf and a tossed salad.
These are delicious with fresh sweet corn and a baked potato. You can spend the day out of the kitchen by assembling the kabobs in the morning, then letting them marinate all day before grilling at dinnertime. —Lorri Cleveland, Kingsville, Ohio
These are quick and easy to prepare, and a fun way to eat vegetables— our kids love them! We like to put the kabobs on the grill, which we do a lot of in summer to keep from heating up the kitchen. – Suzanne McKinley, Lyons, Georgia
These delightful picnic kabobs are my young daughter's favorite. My husband also enjoys them, even though he never cared much for pork. The cool, refreshing sauce is a tempting topping for sizzling grilled kabobs.
