My husband loves to grill these deliciously different turkey kabobs, and everyone gets a kick out of the zingy taste from the limes and jalapenos. Its tongue-tingling combination of flavors makes this one company dish that always draws compliments.

Our home economists wanted to wrap seasoned scallops in thin zucchini strips before threading them onto skewers for grilling. The problem was finding a terrific scallop recipe. When Hershey, Pennsylvania's Julie Gwinn shared her citrus marinade, they found just what they were looking for.
