These hearty, meat-and-potato skewers have a little something to please everyone, from pineapple to pork. I cook these kabobs even in winter; I just shovel a path to the grill. —Dione Steffens, Dimmitt, Texas
You'll make any get-together special with these attractive kabobs. Cubes of marinated steak are skewered with shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes, green peppers and onions, then grilled. For picnics, I assemble the kabobs at home and carry them in a large container.

My husband loves to barbecue, so when it's hot outside, we do entire meals on the grill. Since our kids love rice, we often include this tangy side dish as part of the menu. —Shirley Hopkins, Olds, Alberta
Living on this beautiful Canadian island, we often grill out, so we can eat while enjoying the scenery. This tempting veggie dish is the perfect accompaniment to any barbecue fare. To make the recipe even more satisfying, I often use my homegrown vegetables an herbs in the mix.
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
